Since the inception of the 10,000 Citation Club award in 2010, six faculty members have been recognized for reaching this exceptional achievement. Jos Eggermont, PhD, is the latest addition to the prestigious list.
The award honours faculty members with a body of work that has accumulated more than 10,000 citations throughout their career. Less than 0.1 percent of researchers would typically accumulate such a high number of citations.
Eggermont’s research focuses on how exposure to loud sounds affects the auditory cortex and its role in inducing tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Eggermont was one of the first investigators that characterized the neural substrates of noise-induced tinnitus and his work in this area is very strongly cited. His work can be found in several leading publications including Nature Neuroscience, the Journal of Neuroscience, Clinical Neurophysiology, Hearing Research and the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.
The Citation Classic award, also introduced in 2010, is similarly extraordinary. Created for faculty members who have had a single manuscript cited over 1,000 times, both Dr. Todd Anderson and Dr. George Wyse join Sam Weiss, PhD, who received the award in 2010, in achieving this milestone.
Dr. Todd Anderson has had two of his works, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology in 1995 and 2002 respectively, cited more than 1,000 times each: “Close Relation of Endothelia Function in Human Coronary and Peripheral Circulations” and “Guidelines for the ultrasound assessment of endothelial-dependent flow-mediated vasodilation of the brachial artery.”
Dr. George Wyse’s article, “A comparison of rate control and rhythm control in patients with atrial fibrillation” was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2002.
The 10,000 Citation Club and Citation Classic awards will be presented at the Celebration of Excellence event in early 2013.
