PHILADELPHIA, USA. November 27th, 2018 – Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, today published its annual Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list. Now in its fifth year, the citation analysis identifies influential researchers as determined by their peers around the globe – those who have consistently won recognition in the form of high citation counts over a decade. The Web of Science serves as the basis for the regular listings of researchers whose citation records position them in the top 1% by citations for their field and year.

David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at Clarivate Analytics explained: “This year, a new cross-field category has been added to recognize researchers with substantial influence in several fields but who do not have enough highly cited papers in any one field to be chosen. For example, an immunologist today is likely both a biochemist and molecular biologist, and a chemist is also a materials scientist and even an engineer. Breaking through the artificial walls of conventional disciplinary categories by the introduction of the new cross-field category aims to keep the Highly Cited Researcher list contemporary and relevant.”

Among researchers that was listed in highly cited researchers 2018 are Prof. Datuk Dr. Ahmad Fauzi Ismail, Prof. Dr. Zainal Salam, and Prof Ir. Dr. Nor Aishah Saidina Amin from Faculty of Engineering, UTM. Congratulations.
