The 2021 list of Highly Cited Researchers, which recognises the world's most influential researchers of the past decade, demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1 percent by citations for field and publication year in Web of Science™ citation index, is now published.

Those recognised and leading world-class research and teaching, helping to translate advances in science into better mental health for all, at the Department of Psychiatry include:

Andrea Cipriani - Professor of Psychiatry and NIHR Research Professor

Seena Fazel - Professor of Forensic Psychiatry and Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Research Fellow

Willem Kuyken - Sir John Ritblat Family Foundation Professor of Mindfulness and Psychological Science

Mark Woolrich - Professor of Computational Neuroscience

 

Senior Researchers recognised, said:

 

'Most importantly high-quality research helps us understand more about mental illness, ways to prevent it and how to develop better treatments. Without the commitment, innovation and collaboration from our teams in the Department of Psychiatry and with colleagues across the wider Oxford neurosciences community, our research would not be possible.'

There are 51 Oxford University researchers included in the 2021 list – the highest in the UK and the 2nd highest in Europe.

 

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

 

 

'It is increasingly important for nations and institutions to recognize and support the exceptional researchers who are driving the expansion of the world’s knowledge. This list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers at the University of Oxford who are having a significant impact on the research community as evidenced by the rate at which their work is being cited by their peers. The research they have contributed is fueling the innovation, sustainability, health and security that is key for our society’s future.'
