25 NUS researchers rank among the world’s most cited scientists

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.

The methodology that determines the “who’s who” of researchers draws on data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts at the Institute for Scientific Information™ at Clarivate. It uses a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data.

NUS Deputy President (Research and Technology) Professor Chen Tsuhan said, “NUS is proud of the achievements of our highly influential researchers who are making significant contributions to their respective fields, and much of their work has a profound impact on the communities we serve. We will remain steadfast in our singular focus on recruiting, nurturing, and retaining talent, who are the catalyst for a sustainable culture of innovation that will further strengthen Singapore’s position as a vibrant research hub.”

David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate said, “In the race for knowledge, it is human capital that is fundamental and this list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers at NUS who are having a great impact on the research community as measured by the rate at which their work is being cited by others.”
