Nine researchers of the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University have been named as scientists whose work is among the most referenced by other researchers worldwide.

In Thomson Reuter's annual publication The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds, six McMaster researchers were listed in clinical medicine and four in social sciences as being most cited.

Under clinical medicine, Stuart Connolly, John Eikelboom, Koon Teo and Salim Yusuf from the Department of Medicine and Gord Guyatt and Janice Pogue from the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics were named. McMaster's researchers represented over a third of the Canadians named as the most influential scientists in clinical medicine, and McMaster was also the only Canadian school that appeared more than once in the category.

For social sciences, Jan Brozek, Gord Guyatt and Holger Schünemann from the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics and Roman Jaeschke from the Department of Medicine were listed. Guyatt is the only Canadian researcher whose name appears under both clinical medicine and social sciences.

According to Thomson Reuters, approximately two million academic papers are published by nine million researchers every year.

"These researchers are among the most influential scientific minds of our time," the report's authors wrote.

The researchers were selected based on the number of highly cited papers they produced over an 11 year period from 2003 to 2013.
