Seven designations for TU Dresden among the Highly Cited Researchers 2016

December 05, 2016

With three designations in 2014 and five in 2015, TU Dresden was able to further increase the number of designations by two in the list of Highly Cited Researchers 2016. Four TUD researchers were designated yet again: Prof. Dr. Karsten Kalbitz (Department of Forest Sciences) in the field of Agricultural Sciences, Prof. Dr. Karl Leo (Department of Physics) in Materials Sciences, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Rehm (2nd affiliation Department of Psychology) in General Social Sciences and Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Wittchen (Department of Psychology) in the field of Psychiatry/Psychology. Prof. Dr. Stefan Kaskel (Department of Chemistry and Food Chemistry) was designated in the field of Material Sciences for the first time. Prof. Dr. Xinliang Feng (Department of Chemistry and Food Chemistry), who was already on the list in 2014 and 2015, but with his former affiliation, obtained two designations for TU Dresden - in the fields Chemistry and Materials Sciences in 2016.

The HCR ranking is an outstanding recognition for the world's leading and most influential scientists. The citation rate indicates how often a publication is cited in publications of peer researchers. It is therefore an essential indicator of the scientific impact of a publication, since the ranking defines the top 1% most cited in their subject field and year of publication. This year's list consists of 3.265 researchers, 187 coming from Germany. The basis for this evaluation are publications in 22 broad fields of science, social sciences and medicine from the years 2004 to 2014. Germany achieves a third rank after the USA (1.529 designated researchers) and the UK (324 designated researchers) and is followed by China (184 designated researchers).

With seven designations, TU Dresden occupies a top ranking in Germany, only just behind TU Munich and the University of Heidelberg. This excellent result shows once more the growing strength in research and the national and international impact of TU Dresden as a science hub.
