Martinos Center Among The Most Influential Institutions In Neuroimaging

June 24, 2016


A new study has identified the 100 most-cited articles in neuroimaging, as well as the associated authors and institutions. The MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging ranked No. 3 on the list of the latter.

The study, published last week on the NeuroImage website, looked at 699 journals considered possible outlets for neuroimaging articles. Using Web of Science search tools, it identified the 100 most-cited articles in those journals and then delved into the information recorded for each. In addition to the Martinos Center’s No. 3 showing on the list of most-cited institutions, the study identified Center investigator Bruce Fischl as one of the most-cited authors.

The findings follow a Thompson-Reuters list of highly cited researchers in the sciences and social sciences, in which eight of the 129 researchers in the Neuroscience & Behavior category were Martinos Center investigators.
