Researchers from NUS have been placed among the world’s most highly cited. This is according to the newly unveiled list of Highly Cited Researchers™ 2020 by Clarivate.
The hotly anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrate significant influence in their chosen field by publishing several highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1 per cent by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.
A total of 25 NUS researchers have been named in this year’s list. These NUS researchers were recognised by their peers as outstanding in the fields of Chemistry, Clinical Medicine, Computer Science, Economics and Business, Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, Neuroscience and Behaviour and more.
This year, more than 6,000 researchers in 21 fields were selected based on the number of highly cited papers they produced over 11 years from January 2009 to December 2019.

It uses a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data.Continue Reading
