On March 2, 2011, Thomson Reuters released data identifying the world’s top 100 materials scientists who achieved the highest citation impact scores for their papers (articles and reviews) published since January 2000.

Impact is a weighted measure of influence that seeks to reveal consistently superior performance. To ensure that a high score 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 above achieved more than six times that mark.
