Four researchers at Hospital Clínic and IDIBAPS among the 2015 most cited scientists

Thomson Reuters lists the 3000 most important names of 21 fields in science and social sciences. There have been evaluated articles published in indexed journals in these fields between 2003 and 2013 and there have only been considered those that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year indexed in the Web of Science, the so called Highly Cited Papers. Thus, the fact of belonging to this classification means that the work of these researchers is considered particularly important among his colleagues.
