A total of 13 scientists and engineers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have been named among the world’s most highly cited researchers, according to the 2017 Highly Cited Researchers report released by Clarivate Analytics today. For the fourth consecutive year, NUS has fielded the most number of highly cited researchers among research institutions in Singapore.

These eminent NUS researchers were identified by Clarivate Analytics’ citation analysis to have consistently won peer approval from across the globe for their remarkable research in their respective fields, as determined by the extent to which their papers have supported, influenced, inspired and challenged other researchers internationally. The 2017 Highly Cited Researchers list is based on research papers published and cited over the last decade, from years 2005 to 2015.

Professor Ho Teck Hua, NUS Deputy President (Research and Technology) and Tan Chin Tuan Centennial Professor, said, “We are proud of the achievements of the 13 NUS researchers who have helped raise Singapore’s global standing in research excellence. This is also a strong recognition of the University’s broad base of research capabilities.”

“At NUS, we place a strong emphasis on cultivating and recruiting high quality talent, and providing the enabling environment for talented individuals to excel and to which they can contribute. We are therefore very encouraged to note that the number of highly cited researchers from NUS has increased steadily over the years. We will continue to build comprehensive research strengths in areas that are strategically important to NUS and Singapore, and intensify our efforts to translate research breakthroughs for economic and societal advancement,” Prof Ho added.
