About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Highly Cited Researchers 2017

Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) recently released Highly Cited Researchers 2017, a list recognizing leading researchers in the Sciences and Social Sciences from around the world.

Highly Cited Researchers from Clarivate Analytics is an annual list recognizing about 3,400 leading researchers in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences from around the world. The 2017 list focuses on contemporary research achievement: only Highly Cited Papers in science and social sciences journals indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection during the 11-year period 2005-2015 were surveyed. Highly Cited Papers are defined as those that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science. Of the 3,400 researchers selected for this list, 29 are from Washington University. Several WU researchers earned distinction in multiple fields.

This data derives from Essential Science Indicators (ESI). The fields are also those employed in  21 broad fields defined by sets of journals and exceptionally, in the case of multidisciplinary journals such as Nature and Science, by a paper-by-paper assignment to a field. This percentile-based selection method removes the citation advantage of older published papers relative to recently published ones, since papers are weighed against others in the same annual cohort.
