Sydney researchers named in world's most highly cited list

Sydney scholars in top 1% of most cited works in their field

Twelve researchers from the University of Sydney have been included in the 2018 Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researchers List.

TheClarivate Analytics 2018 Highly Cited Researchers Listrecognised more than 4,000 leading researchers in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences from around the world, including 17 Nobel laureates.

Now in its fifth year,the annual listidentifies influential researchers having the greatest impact on the research community as measured by the rate at which their work is being cited by their peers around the globe. TheWeb of Scienceserves as the basis for regular listings of researchers whose citation records position them in the top 1 percent by citations for their field and year.

The 12 researchers were recognised in categories including agricultural sciences, chemistry, clinical medicine, computer science, economics and business, engineering, microbiology, neuroscience and behaviour, social sciences and cross-field. 

The new cross-field category was added this year to recognise researchers with substantial influence in several fields but who do not have enough highly cited papers in any one field to be chosen. Three of the University of Sydney researchers were named in the cross-field category.

The Highly Cited Researcher List is used by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) to calculate an institution’s Highly Cited score and contributes to its overall institutional score.In 2018, the University of Sydney climbed 15 places, its best result since the ARWU rankings began in 2003.
