AsianScientist (Sep. 25, 2017) – Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, has announced its 2017 Citation Laureates.

Each year since 2002, analysts at Clarivate Analytics have mined millions of citations in the Web of Science to identify top-tier researchers in physiology or medicine, physics and chemistry, fields recognized by the Nobel Prizes in science. Citation Laureates are scientists whose publications have been cited so often by their colleagues—and thus who have been so influential—that they are forecast as potential recipients of the Nobel Prize in this year or in the future.

In 15 years, 43 Citation Laureates have gone on to receive Nobel honors. This year’s cohort includes researchers from Japan and South Korea who are recognized for their discovery and application of perovskite materials, Professors Tsutomu Miyasaka and Park Nam-Gyu.

Miyasaka is a Professor of Photoelectrochemistry and Energy Science at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering and Graduate School of Engineering, Toin University of Yokohama. He is also group leader of national research projects funded by Japan Science Technology Agency (JST) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Park Nam-Gyu is a Professor at the School of Chemical Engineering of Sungkyunkwan University.
