Top 20 Authors

The authors with the greatest number of total citations in this analysis come from all over the world with only three institutions—the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), the University of Chicago and Stanford—having more than one in the top 20. At the very top of the list, not surprisingly, is Jonathan Ellis of King's College London and CERN. Ellis has been a leading proponent of supersymmetric models since the early 1980s, while also demonstrating that the lightest supersymmetric particles are good candidates for the dark matter that pervades the universe. Ellis's long-time collaborator, Keith Olive of the University of Minnesota, sits at #3 on the author list.

Many of the authors on the top 20 list would also rank high on a listing of the most-cited authors in string theory and extra-dimensional universes—Shamit Kachru of Stanford, Juan Maldacena and Nima Arkani-Hamed of the IAS, and Cumrun Vafa of Harvard University, to name just a few.

About The Authors



The resulting database contained 21,944 authors. Ranked by three separate measures: citations, papers, and citations per paper. Source dates: January 1, 2001-September 26, 2011. *Unless otherwise specified, all rankings have a >= 5 paper threshold for all measures.

Overall General Information


 
Regarding Top 20 Scientists, Institutions, Journals, & Nations

Citation tables allow us to map compelling trends:

  • Are there particular nations or institutions that might be expected to dominate research in the Topic area, and do the numbers bear out these expectations, or are there surprises?
  • Who are the leading scientists and where are they located?

While these tables cannot offer a complete picture, the number of trends and anomalies that can be spotlighted or connected across categories is striking. The tables often lead to renewed perspectives to further explore and validate.

What are Special Topics?



Special Topics, from ScienceWatch.com, is designed to complement Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Thomson Reuters in providing citation analyses and commentary for selected scientific research areas that have experienced notable recent advances or are of special current interest.
