Highly Cited Researchers List for 2018
Clarivate Analytics recently released the Highly Cited Researchers 2018 list that identifies scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant influence through publication of multiple highly cited papers during 2006-2016. These researchers are among those whose publications rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in Web of Science. Several WU researchers earned distinction in multiple fields. Of the 6,000 researchers on the list, 34 researchers are currently associated with Washington University. A new “Cross-Field” category is noted for researchers with substantial influence across several fields during the last decade.

Changes Forthcoming for My Bibliography
NIH plans to launch a redesigned version of My Bibliography that is mobile-friendly and easier to use. In the meantime, NIH is seeking feedback on pilot testing of a trial version of My Bibliography using NCBI Labs for users to provide feedback for the redesigned version. See the announcement “Try Out a New Version of My Bibliography in NCBI Labs.”
Please note that this experimental My Bibliography does not connect to SciENcv or RPPR, and any updates will not be saved to your current My Bibliography account. For more information see the announcement “Big Changes Coming to My Bibliography in 2019!”

Finkel A. To Move Research From Quantity to Quality, Go Beyond Good Intentions. Nature. February 2019. Dr. Finkel, Australia’s chief scientist, outlines a plan to move from quantity to quality to promote the rigor and reproducibility of published research. One approach is the Rule of Five: “candidates present their best five papers over the past five years, accompanied by a description of the research, its impact and their individual contribution. The exact numbers are immaterial: what matters is the focus on quality.”
