Professor Andy Cooper, Head of the School of Physical Sciences, has been named as one of the top 100 materials scientists in the world of the past decade.
Compiled by the Times Higher Education using data supplied by Thomson Reuters, the list places Professor Cooper, Director of the University’s Centre for Materials Discovery, 95th in the world of researchers who achieved the highest citation-impact scores for papers published since January 2000. He is one of only eight UK-based scientists to be featured in the top 100.
Impact is a weighted measure of influence that seeks to reveal consistently superior performance. To ensure that high scores could not be achieved by a few highly cited papers, a threshold of 25 papers was used in the analysis. The average citation impact in materials science for the period was 6.93 so all the researchers listed achieved more than six times that mark.
Approximately 500,000 materials scientists were recorded in the journal publications indexed by Thomson Reuters during the past decade, which means that those who made it onto the Top 100 list represent the top 1% in the field.
