Web of Science Highly Cited Researchers List ribbon

Fifty-four members of Duke’s faculty are included in the 2019 Highly Cited Researchers list compiled by ISI-Web of Science and Clarivate Analytics. More than half of them (37) are from the School of Medicine. 

A high citation rate is an indication that a researcher’s work is influential in their field. Globally, Duke is in a four-way tie for eighth place with MIT, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and the University of California San Diego. In 2018, Duke was tied for 12th worldwide.

The data are taken from 21 broad research fields. The fields are defined by sets of journals and, in the case of multidisciplinary journals such as Nature and Science, by a paper-by-paper assignment to a field based on an analysis of the cited references in the papers.

Twenty-four of the Duke researchers are in the category of "Cross-Field" for being multidisciplinary.
