I received the title “Highly Cited Researcher” for the third time in a row

Today I received the achievement “Highly Cited Researcher 2022” from Clarivate™ / Web of Science™. It is the third time in a row that I have received the title “Highly Cited Researcher” and I am very happy to see that my work of the last decade is still making a difference in the scientific community worldwide. The online analysis shows that Germany contributes 369 researchers to the overall list of 6,938 researchers.

Here is today’s email from Clarivate™:

“Each year, Clarivate™ identifies the world’s most influential researchers ─ the select few who have been most frequently cited by their peers over the last decade. In 2022, fewer than 7,000, or about 0.1%, of the world’s researchers, in 21 research fields and across multiple fields, have earned this exclusive distinction. You are among this elite group recognized for your exceptional research influence, demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in the Web of Science™.”
