Highly Cited Researchers 2018
We are extremely pleased to hear that our CSO Professor Harald Haas has been added to Clarivate Analytics list of Highly Cited Researchers 2018.
Highly Cited Researchers are selected for their exceptional research performance, determined by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in Web of Science.
Of the world population of scientists and social scientists, the Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researchers are one in 1,000.
The Clarivate Analytics list of Highly Cited Researchers for 2018 identifies scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant influence through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Researchers are selected for their exceptional performance in one or more of 21 fields (those used in Essential Science Indicators (ESI)) or across several fields.
Approximately 6,000 researchers are named Highly Cited Researchers in 2018 — some 4,000 in specific fields and about 2,000 for Cross-Field performance. This is the firstyear that researchers with Cross-Field impact are identified. The number of researchers selected in each field is based on the square root of the population of authors listed on the field’s highly cited papers. The number of those with Cross-Field influence is determined by finding those who have influence equivalent to those identified in the 21 fields. For the 2018 Highly Cited Researchers analysis, the papers surveyed were those published and cited during 2006- 2016 and which at the end of 2016 ranked in the top 1% by citations for their ESI field and year (the definition of a highly cited paper). The threshold number of highly cited papers for selection differs by field, with Clinical Medicine requiring the most and Agricultural Sciences, Economics & Business, and Pharmacology & Toxicology the fewest. A second criterion for selection is a citation count to highly cited papers that ranks a researcher in the top 1% by total citations in an ESI field for the period surveyed.
