Society Awards


A measure of the impact of our faculty member’s contributions is in the number of times his/her work is cited in peer-reviewed journals.  While recognizing that there are many databases for citations, we will use the Web of Science (Thomson Reuters) database to chart citations. 

Accordingly, our faculty celebrates 2 types of citations: 1) the Citation Classic, where a single manuscript is cited over 1,000 times, and 2) the 10,000 citation, where the collective work of an individual is cited over 10,000 times.  Faculty members who reach these milestones will be celebrated through an announcement via the Communications Office, and at the annual Celebration of Excellence.
