Dr. Schena receives publication award.
Sunnyvale, CA, January 21, 2003 – On January 10th, Thomson Corporation, the world’s leading information resource, announced that TeleChem’s Visiting Scholar Dr. Mark Schena published the most highly cited scientific paper in the history of his field. Thomson’s ISI Division tracks scientific research papers as an indicator of their scientific impact.
The Essential Science Indicators chose a number of important research areas including the Arabidopsis field, which published Dr. Schena’s pioneering Science paper on microarrays. In the study, a total of 18,180 papers from 722 scientific journals, representing 29,339 authors in 83 countries and 3,272 institutions were assembled and ranked according to the number of journal citations over a ten year period spanning 1992-2002. Dr. Schena’s paper “Quantitative Monitoring of Gene Expression Patterns with a Complementary DNA Microarray” published in Science magazine in 1995 (Science 270, 467-470) received a total of 1,287 citations, ranking it number one among the 18,180 papers examined. The next closest publications from the INRA in France, the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, and Harvard Medical School in Boston received 722, 535 and 529 citations, respectively.
“This is a totally unexpected award”, said Dr. Schena. “We knew that the paper was well received, but to be rated number one among so many fine publications is simply amazing. This is a great day for the Arabidopsis field, microarrays and TeleChem. The entire Stanford research team deserves praise for this accomplishment.”
