Clarivate Highly Cited Researcher List 2020

The highly anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.

This year’s list continues to recognise researchers whose citation records position them in the very highest strata of influence and impact, including 23 Nobel laureates.

Year on year the inclusion of so many IoPPN researchers on this list is an amazing recognition of how important internationally our work is regarded.

David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information

The methodology that determines the “who’s who” of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information™ at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries and research institutions where these scientific elite are based.
