JCSMR researchers recognised as some of the world’s most influential

Professor Carola Vinuesa and Professor Si Ming Man

Professor Si Ming Man has joined some of the world’s brightest minds by being named a 2020 Highly Cited Researcher by the Web of Science. 

Professor Man joins fellow JCSMR researcher Professor Carola Vinuesa, who has achieved this honour for the second time.

The highly anticipated list identifies science and social science researchers who have consistently produced papers ranking in the top one per cent by citations for their field, demonstrating significant research influence.

Both Professor Man and Professor Vinuesa have been recognised for their cross-field contributions and exceptional broad performance based on high impact papers across several fields.

“This is a fantastic achievement by Si Ming and Carola. We’re very proud to see the world-leading impact of their research.” said Professor Graham Mann, Director of The John Curtin School of Medical Research.

The number of Highly Cited Researchers and the number of articles indexed in the Science Citation Index, produced by the Web of Science Group, are among six objective indicators that the Academic Ranking of World Universities uses to rank world universities. In 2020, the ANU ranked in the top 100 worldwide.
