Andrew Weaver cited for being citable

Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Dr. Andrew Weaver is one of the world’s most highly cited scientists of 2014

Dr. Andrew Weaver is one of the world’s most highly cited scientists of 2014 says a report issued last week by Thomson Reuters.

“This is a profound honour, and I wish to extend congratulations to all the scientists and researchers who have been noted today, especially those in Canada” said Weaver. “Ironically this comes in a week where the Prime Minister is trumping science as the reasoning for approving the Northern Gateway project. This from a government which has slashed funding for research, muzzled federal researchers from speaking publicly and closing vital libraries”

Weaver is the only Canadian of 159 globally to receive this distinction in the broad field of geoscience.

He shares the accolade with 91 Canadian scientists in fields ranging from agriculture to space. A total of 3,215 scientists and researchers were listed worldwide for 2014.

 

More than 3,000 researchers earned the Highly Cited Researchers 2014 distinction by writing the greatest numbers of reports officially designated by Essential Science Indicators as Highly Cited Papers – ranking among the top one per cent most cited for their subject field and year of publication, earning them the mark of exceptional impact.
