Two researchers based at the James Hutton Institute in Dundee have been named as Highly Cited Researchers in the Highly Cited Researchers 2019 list published by the Web of Science Group.

Professor Philip J. White is a senior scientist within the Institute’s Ecological Sciences group, with over 200 refereed papers and has featured in the Highly Cited Researchers list since 2014. His research focuses on many aspects of plant mineral nutrition, from the genes to the ecosystem. He holds a Chair in Biology at King Saud University, Riyadh, and has been also awarded a DSc by the University of Manchester for his contributions to the knowledge of the accumulation of mineral elements by plants.

Professor John Raven is Emeritus Professor from the Division of Plant Sciences of the University of Dundee and an Honorary Fellow of the Institute. His primary research interests are in the energetics, ecophysiology and biogeochemistry of aquatic and terrestrial primary producers, with related studies on palaeoecology and some recent forays into astrobiology. He was recently awarded the Albert I Grand Medal in recognition of his research in the oceanographic field.

The Highly Cited Researchers list identifies scientists and social scientists who produced multiple papers ranking in the top 1% by citations for their field and year of publication, demonstrating significant research influence among their peers. The methodology used to compile it draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute for Scientific Information at the Web of Science Group.

Professor Colin Campbell, Chief Executive of the James Hutton Institute, commented: "The influential contributions made by Philip and John have been aptly recognised with their inclusion in the Highly Cited list. We are fortunate to have them, and they make a great contribution to science by supporting other scientists too. This accolade further demonstrates the Institute's world-class capabilities in science."

The Web of Science Group, part of Clarivate Analytics and publishers of the Highly Cited Researcher list, specialise in organising the world’s research information to enable academia, corporations, publishers and governments to accelerate the pace of research.
