US Clarivate Analytics' annual Highly Cited Researchers list reveals influential scientific researchers and their institutions - 27 Nov 2018

Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, has 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.

This year, a new cross-field category has been added 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.

Key findings reveal that about 4000+ Highly Cited Researchers are named in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences. The United States is home to the highest number of HCRs, with 2,639 authors. The United Kingdom boasts 546. China (mainland) is gaining fast with 482. Harvard University keeps its pole position on the list.

Among the 4,058 researchers named as Highly Cited in the 21 Essential Science Indicator (ESI) fields, 194, or 4.8%, appear in two ESI fields. An elite 24 researchers, hailing from North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, appear in three fields.

New for 2018 - approximately 2,000 additional researchers have also been identified as having exceptional performance based on high impact papers in several fields. Nations or regions with more than 40% of their Highly Cited Researchers selected in the cross-field category are Sweden (53%), Austria (53%), Singapore (47%), Denmark (47%), China (43%) and South Korea (42%).

This year's list continues to recognise researchers whose citation records position them in the highest ranks of influence and impact: it includes 17 Nobel laureates, including two announced this year - James P. Allison, Physiology or Medicine, and William D. Nordhaus, Economic Sciences. Also included are 56 Clarivate Analytics Citation Laureates - individuals who, through citation analysis, have been identified as researchers 'of Nobel class' and potential Nobel Prize recipients.

Australian research institutes continue to impress; the number of researchers recognised as Highly Cited has more than doubled in four years, from 80 in 2014 to 170 in 2018, among those selected in one or more of the 21 fields. Australian research institutions appear to have recruited a significant number of HCRs since 2014 as well as increasing their number of homegrown HCRs.

China (mainland) continues to march its way up the list and has overtaken Germany to reach the third spot on the top 10 country/region list.

Governmental research institutions also feature prominently with the US National Institutes of Health, the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and health-related research, appearing second in the list of Highly Cited Researchers. The Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Max Planck Society also feature in the top 10.

The Highly Cited Researchers represent more than 60 nations, but more than 80% of them are from the 10 nations listed in the table and 70% from the first five - a remarkable concentration of top talent.

The methodology that determines the who's who of high-impact researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute of Scientific Information at Clarivate Analytics. It uses Essential Science Indicators, a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data from the Web of Science, the premier web-based environment of scientific and scholarly research literature totalling over 33,000 journals.

UK Jisc and Elsevier in deal to support UK institutions with REF compliance and identify article metadata more effectively - 27 Nov 2018

Jisc, a not-for-profit organisation committed to providing UK universities and colleges shared digital infrastructure and services, and Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, have signed an agreement setting out how they will work together to support institutions to comply with UK open access policies, as part of their Open Science partnership, agreed in 2016 as a component of the UK Elsevier ScienceDirect renewal.

Both Jisc and Elsevier share the goal of making academic research and its contribution to scholarship, education, and social and economic development visible, and to support the successful and efficient, implementation of funder open access policies. In particular, Jisc and Elsevier share a commitment to help institutions implement the open access eligibility criteria for the UK Research Excellence Framework (REF).

With timely access to Elsevier's ScienceDirect article and journal-level metadata, for example article acceptance date, embargo date, and grant/funder IDs, Jisc's Publications Router service will be able to support UK institutions more efficiently and comprehensively identify UK-published articles at various stages of the publication process. UK institutions will be able to access this metadata via Elsevier's APIs directly within their institutional repository or can get tailored feeds via the Jisc Publications Router. Subsequently, institutions can ingest metadata into library systems and repositories giving institutions greater insight into their researchers' publishing activities-empowering them to take steps to comply with open access policies.

Elsevier publishes 17 percent of UK authored papers. This agreement, therefore, marks a significant contribution towards helping UK universities identify publications and contribute towards REF compliance. This agreement boosts Router's input coverage of UK authored papers from 63 percent to 74 percent, taking into account some overlap with sources already used by Router.

Jisc and Elsevier anticipate that further opportunities for this kind of collaboration will be identified by the Jisc-Elsevier Open Science Forum, an additional outcome of the 2016 UK ScienceDirect agreement between Elsevier and Jisc Collections.

UK Altmetric integrates its data into Meta - 27 Nov 2018

Data science company and alternative metrics provider Altmetric has announced the integration of its data into Meta, allowing users of the platform to gain quick insights into how the community is sharing and discussing published research.

Meta, a free service from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, is a platform that uses artificial intelligence to help scientists read, analyse, prioritise, and draw insights across tens of millions of scientific papers.

Meta identifies the most relevant and impactful studies in a scientific area and finds patterns in the literature on a scale that no human being could find alone. This helps scientists learn about developments relevant to their research interests in real time, accelerating the pace of science. With the integration of Altmetric data, users can understand the global consumption of research outputs across the web, including mentions in the mainstream media, as well as where they are shared and discussed via online tools and communities such as Twitter, Wikipedia, F1000, Facebook, Reddit, and Mendeley.

The information from Altmetric has been directly inserted into Meta's 'feeds', AI-powered streams that Meta members use to follow concepts, people, genes, diseases, and more.
