Professor Andrew Oswald named as Clarivate Citation Laureate 2022Wednesday 21 Sep 2022
Congratulations to our faculty member Professor Andrew Oswald on receiving a prestigious honour of being selected as a Citation Laureate for 2022 by Clarivate Plc.
The award honours Andrew Oswald ‘for pioneering contributions to the economics of happiness and subjective well-being.’
This award recognises an exceptional citation record within the Web of Science™ - one that demonstrates research influence comparable to that of Nobel Prize recipients. For twenty years the Web of Science, now owned by Clarivate, has each year released a group of names a few weeks prior to the Nobel announcements from Stockholm. More than 60 of those individuals have gone on eventually to win the Prize in Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, and Economics. This year, 2022, a total of 21 recipients have been honoured as Citation Laureates across the 4 disciplines.
Andrew Oswald is one of three recipients of this award, jointly, for their work on the economics of wellbeing (the others are Richard Easterlin of the University of Southern California and Richard Layard of the London School of Economics).
Andrew Oswald said:
“It's nice to receive this, most especially alongside my international colleague Richard Easterlin, who is now in his nineties and who helped begin the field in the 1970s. I am also pleased for Warwick and the Economics Department: for some decades they have allowed me to do often-unconventional types of research."
Oswald is Professor of Economics and Behavioural Science at the University of Warwick. He joined Warwick from LSE in 1996, and is currently a member of the board of reviewing editors of the journal Science.
Andrew’s recent research has included work on the empirical study of job satisfaction, human happiness, mental health, pain and the business cycle, labour productivity, and climate change.
