Oscars for scientists

Wednesday, 21 March, 2001

On March 26, the 33 Australian scientists whose papers have been most-frequently cited by their colleagues are to be honoured at a ceremony in Canberra that has been likened to awarding Oscars to scientists.

The event, "Honouring Excellence in Australian Research," will honour 33 highly cited Australian authors, who will be receiving "Citation Laureate" awards.

These Australian authors have published more than six high impactor world class papers in their fields.

These highly cited papers document significant research results and then become the foundation of discussion and a resource for other research papers worldwide.

The Awards work by counting the number of times a scientific paper is referred to (or cited) in articles and papers by other authors. The more times a paper is cited, the more influential it is.
