Wikipedia:WikiProject Missing encyclopedic articles/Thomson-Reuters most cited scientists

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

According to the article "The Distorted Mirror of Wikipedia: a Quantitative Analysis of Wikipedia Coverage of Academics", Wikipedia is missing coverage of a large number of notable scientists from the Thomson Reuters list of highly cited researchers. There are over 6,000 names on the Thomson-Reuters list, but only a selection of these missing names are provided here at a time, to avoid copyright concerns. As names are removed from this list, more will be added.

The complete online directory can be found here.

Missing scientists (from A)[edit]

Note: All new articles must satisfy Wikipedia's notability criteria; people on this list may or may not qualify. If you believe one doesn't, please move their name to #Scientists without sufficient coverage.

Scientists without sufficient coverage[edit]

Almost all of the Thompson-Reuters researchers pass the academics' notability standards under criteria 1 (made significant contributions to their respective fields) and 2 (received international recognition for it), but some of them seem not to have received enough in-depth coverage in reliable sources to allow a verifiable Wikipedia biography to be written, yet. If you believe you have identified such a scientist, please move their name to this table.
