Roughly two years ago I blogged "NZ's hottest researchers from 2010-2012" (updated figure), this was a list of NZ-based researchers that had published several papers that had been cited 10 or more times between 2010 and 2012.
I thought it was about time to update this listing and I had some spare time over the Xmas holidays to work on this (hayfever at my in-law's place in Taranaki laid me out for a day or two). I'm now finishing this up during the Easter holidays. Has anything changed in the past two years? I was also curious to find out which funding agencies were funding these researchers and whether the researchers they published was open access or not.
