ESI Director named „Highly Cited Researcher“ in 2016 and 2017

Prof. Dr. Pascal Fries, director of the Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI), has been named a “Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher” both in 2016 and 2017. This recognition is assigned according to an analysis of citations in “Web of Science” in the years 2004?2014 and 2005-2015, respectively. First, 22 broad fields of the sciences and social sciences are defined, among them “Neuroscience and Behavior”. In each field, the so-called Highly Cited Papers are determined, which rank in the top 1% by total citations according to the field and publication year. Subsequently, the authors with the most Highly Cited Papers are selected.
