The quality and impact of scientific research is increasingly measured by calculating and analysing how researchers cite each other’s work. Here we have collected some of the University of Helsinki’s most cited researchers.

The University’s most acclaimed researchers have been selected from the Essential Science Indicators and InCites databases, both of which are based on the Thomson Reuters Web of Science database. Google Scholar and the Elsevier SciVal analysis database have also been used.

Texts are written by science journalist Antti Kivimäki and photos are taken by photographer Linda Tammisto.
