Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Visual acuity
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ophthalmology, Glaucoma, Global health, Optic nerve and Intraocular pressure. Jost B. Jonas usually deals with Glaucoma and limits it to topics linked to Anatomy and Retinal and Retina. Jost B. Jonas has researched Global health in several fields, including Gerontology, Environmental health, Mortality rate, Cause of death and Life expectancy.

His Mortality rate study combines topics in areas such as Epidemiology, Years of potential life lost and Incidence. The study incorporates disciplines such as Disability-adjusted life year, Disease burden and Population health in addition to Years of potential life lost. His Life expectancy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Child mortality and Epidemiological transition.

His most cited work include:

  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Jost B. Jonas mainly focuses on Ophthalmology, Glaucoma, Optic nerve, Intraocular pressure and Optic disc. As part of his studies on Ophthalmology, Jost B. Jonas often connects relevant subjects like Surgery. His Glaucoma research incorporates elements of Eye disease, Optometry and Visual field.

His Intraocular pressure study incorporates themes from Blood pressure and Cerebrospinal fluid pressure. His studies in Blood pressure integrate themes in fields like Body mass index and Cardiology. Jost B. Jonas studied Visual acuity and Macular degeneration that intersect with Diabetic retinopathy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ophthalmology (68.36%)
  • Glaucoma (36.66%)
  • Optic nerve (23.75%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ophthalmology (68.36%)
  • Glaucoma (36.66%)
  • Global health (9.70%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Jost B. Jonas mainly investigates Ophthalmology, Glaucoma, Global health, Confidence interval and Refractive error. His research integrates issues of Diabetic retinopathy, Axial length and Macular degeneration in his study of Glaucoma. His Global health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Life expectancy, Mortality rate, Disease burden and Environmental health.

His work in Mortality rate addresses issues such as Years of potential life lost, which are connected to fields such as Cause of death. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Developing country and Risk factor. He has included themes like Visual impairment, Optometry and Dioptre in his Refractive error study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived With Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2016: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study. (2660 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex-specific mortality for 282 causes of death in 195 countries and territories, 1980-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1735 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Visual acuity

Jost B. Jonas mostly deals with Global health, Mortality rate, Years of potential life lost, Environmental health and Life expectancy. His Global health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fertility, Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, Developing country, Per capita and Disease burden. The various areas that Jost B. Jonas examines in his Mortality rate study include Psychological intervention, Epidemiology, Incidence, Young adult and Child mortality.

His Incidence research includes themes of Verbal autopsy, Disease and Public health. As a part of the same scientific study, Jost B. Jonas usually deals with the Years of potential life lost, concentrating on Disability-adjusted life year and frequently concerns with COPD. In his study, Relative risk is strongly linked to Risk factor, which falls under the umbrella field of Environmental health.
