75 Citation Laureates named by the Institute for Scientific
Information have received a Nobel Prize since 2002
LONDON, Oct. 10,
2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarivate Plc (NYSE:CLVT),
a global leader in connecting people and organizations to
intelligence they can trust to transform their world, today
celebrates the four new Nobel Laureates who were accurately
identified as potential Nobel Prize recipients. Ferenc Krausz, Moungi G. Bawendi, Louis E. Braus and Claudia Goldin were named to the Citation
Laureates™ list from Clarivate™ several years before being
recognized by the Nobel Assembly.
Every year, the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)™ at
Clarivate interprets the high-quality citation data in the Web of
Science™ to identify researchers of Nobel class who may be future
Nobel Prize recipients.
Four of this year's Nobel Laureates in three categories
(Physics, Chemistry and Economics) were identified as being of
Nobel class as far back as 2012. This demonstrates that extremely
high levels of citations in trusted journals can signal what the
global scientific community regards as groundbreaking and of the
utmost importance. Since 2002, a remarkable 75 Citation Laureates
have gone on to receive a Nobel Prize.
To explain the accuracy of the ISI in identifying future Nobel
Laureates, David Pendlebury, Head of
Research Analysis, ISI, Clarivate, said: "We rise to the unique
challenge of forecasting Nobel Prize laureates by combining
data-driven quantitative analysis with the human expertise of our
analysts at ISI. This approach allows us to identify potential
Nobel awardees years in advance, as exemplified by the four
Citation Laureates honored this year. Their groundbreaking
contributions have transformed our world, and it is an honor to see
them recognized with a Nobel Prize."
The four Citation Laureates named as Nobel Laureates in 2023
- The 2023 Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded to Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L'Huillier "for
experimental methods that generate attosecond pulses of light for
the study of electron dynamics in matter".
- ISI identified this scientific breakthrough in 2015 as
deserving of a Nobel Prize, linked to Ferenc Krausz, Anne L'Huillier and Paul Corkum for their contributions to the
development of attosecond physics. While Krausz and Corkum were
named Citation Laureates in 2015, Anne L'Huillier declined to be
included on the list.
- The 2023 Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded to Moungi G.
Bawendi, Louis E. Brus
and Alexey Ekimov "for the discovery
and synthesis of quantum dots".
- ISI named two of the researchers behind this scientific
breakthrough several years ago: Louis E.
Brus was named a Citation Laureate in 2012 for the discovery
of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots), and Moungi
G. Bawendi in 2020 for synthesis of nanocrystals with precise
attributes for a wide range of applications in physical, biological
and medical systems.
- The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of
Alfred Nobel 2023 was awarded to
Claudia Goldin "for having
advanced our understanding of women's labour market outcomes".
- ISI identified Claudia Goldin as
a Citation Laureate in 2020, recognizing her Nobel-worthy
contributions to labor economics, especially her analysis of women
and the gender pay gap.
