Thirteen NUS researchers have been named among the world’s most highly cited, based on Clarivate Analytics’ 2017 Highly Cited Researchers report released on 15 November. This is also the fourth consecutive year NUS has fielded the most number of highly cited researchers among research institutions in Singapore.
Clarivate Analytics’ citation analysis has shown that these researchers consistently win peer approval from around the globe for their remarkable research in their respective fields, including chemistry, computer science, engineering, materials science, mathematics, physics, psychology and social sciences. This was determined by the extent their papers have supported, influenced, inspired and challenged other researchers internationally.
Professor Ho Teck Hua, NUS Deputy President (Research & Technology) and Tan Chin Tuan Centennial Professor, said that the University is proud of the achievements of the 13 NUS researchers that have helped raise Singapore’s global standing in research excellence, adding that it is a strong recognition of the University’s broad base of research capabilities.
