Every October, The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters begins a special countdown. The grand tally unfolds detailing the number of Nobel Prize winners that its citation and analytics experts have accurately predicted. For the past few months, Thomson Reuters' analyst David Pendlebury and his team have been analyzing proprietary data from the Web of Science, Thomson Reuters' research and citation database, against other criteria to pinpoint the most influential researchers in the fields of chemistry, physics, physiology or medicine, and economics. Since the Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates study was first started in 2002, the analytics experts have accurately predicted 27 Nobel Prize winners, based on citation evidence and bibliometric data.
