The Greeks in the list with the world’s most influential scientific minds 2015

Thomson Reuters report on “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds,” covering the main areas of science and the social sciences, presenting the researchers who, in their respective fields, have contributed markedly high numbers of top-cited papers over a recent ten-year period. The report also includes a section on the world’s “hottest” scientists, whose work within the last two years has been cited at a notably rapid clip. Every year upwards of 9 million scientists and scholars publish their findings in academic journals producing papers that, according to some estimates, likely number in excess of 2 million.

Compiled annually, the “Most Influential Scientific Minds” report reflects data from the Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researchers website, with publication and citation figures drawn from Essential Science Indicators (ESI), a component of the Web of Science.

Of the 3,126 Highly Cited Researchers in the 2015 listings, 27 scientists are Greek. It is worth mentioning that one of them Professor Paul Alivisatos is featured in 3 different categories: Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science. Whereas Professor John Ioannidis is featured in 2 different categories in Social Sciences and Clinican Medicine.
