Notably, the trio have received repeated recognition from Clarivate for their research. Since 2014, Brownson has been featured on the list nine times, while Powell and Proctor have each been recognized five times.

Established in 2001, the annual list identifies scientists and social scientists from around the world who demonstrate significant and broad influence in their respective fields, as evidenced by the frequent citation of their papers by peers over the past decade. Highly cited papers rank in the top 1% by citations for a field and publication year in the Web of Science, a Clarivate tool.
