Now in its sixth year, the Clarivate Highly Cited Researchers list identifies influential researchers as determined by their peers around the globe – scientists who produced multiple papers ranking in the top 1% by citations for their field and year of publication.

The methodology that determines the list of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate.

Professor David Price, UCL Vice-Provost (Research), said: “It is a significant achievement to be included in this list, which highlights the truly global influence of those researchers, as well as the dedication of professional staff across UCL who have played a role in the success of these researchers. I am delighted to also see a large and growing number of ‘cross-field’ researchers included, highlighting the university’s commitment to and excellence in cross-disciplinary research”.
