MIA researchers feature on prestigious Highly Cited Researchers 2020 List

18 November 2020

Melanoma Institute Australia is proud to announce that MIA’s Co-Medical Directors, Professor Georgina Long AO and Professor Richard Scolyer, as well as MIA Faculty member Associate Professor Alex Menzies and former Faculty member Professor Rick Kefford AM, have been named on the annual Highly Cited Researchers™ 2020 list from Clarivate.

The highly anticipated annual list is the “who’s who” of the scientific elite from across the globe. It identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade.

Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.

According to Clarivate, 6,167 researchers from more than 60 countries and regions have been recognized this year, with Australian research institutes continuing to punch above their weight. In a country of just 25 million, the number of Australian researchers recognized in 2020 is 305.

MIA Co-Medical Director Professor Georgina Long AO, whose video interview with Clarivate is featured online, said:

“This accolade is recognition of the ground-breaking work being carried out by the entire team at Melanoma Institute Australia as we continue our quest to develop treatments that will ultimately save the lives of all melanoma patients.”

Fellow Co-Medical Director of MIA Professor Richard Scolyer said:

“It is an honour to again be included on this list alongside several other MIA researchers and clinicians. It shows the phenomenal and ongoing impact that MIA’s work and research is having around the world.”

David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate said:

“In the race for knowledge, it is human capital that is fundamental and this list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers from Melanoma Institute Australia who are having a great impact on the research community as measured by the rate at which their work is being cited by others.”

Melanoma Institute Australia is affiliated with The University of Sydney
