16 DZHK researchers are "Highly Cited Researchers" 2022

The worldwide "Highly Cited Researchers" ranking includes researchers whose work is cited particularly frequently by their peers.

​ ​

16 scientists of the German Centre for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK) are among the most cited researchers worldwide and thus among the most influential experts in their field of research. The list of "Highly Cited Researchers" is published every year by the analysis company Clarivate.

​ ​

This year, 6,938 people from 69 countries made it into the ranking. With 369 researchers, Germany is in fourth place in the country comparison, after the USA, China and the United Kingdom. For the ranking, Clarivate surveyed how frequently scientific articles published between January 2011 and December 2021 were cited by peers. Articles are considered frequently cited if they are among the top one percent of most cited publications in their field in their year of publication.

To address the increasing concern about possible scientific misconduct such as plagiarism, image manipulation or falsified peer reviews, Clarivate paid increased attention to such references and excluded researchers from the list where appropriate.
