A- A A+

Thomson Reuters announced changes in the definition and ranking of highly-cited authors and institutions on 19 February. The new methodology will be applied to the Web of Science database in May 2013. Changes include a new 10-year “moving window, with citations counted over an additional year, so every paper is available for citation for at least 12 months.”  The full release is on this page.
