Clarivate Plc, a global leader in connecting people and organizations to intelligence they can trust to transform their world, has revealed its 2023 list of Highly Cited Researchers™ – influential researchers at universities, research institutes, and commercial organizations around the world who have demonstrated significant and broad influence in their field(s) of research.
Analysts at the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)™ have recognized 6,849 Highly Cited Researchers in 2023, from more than 1,300 institutions in 67 nations and regions. The evaluation and selection process draws on data from the Web of Science™ citation index, together with analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the ISI at Clarivate™.
This year the evaluation and selection process for Highly Cited Researchers has evolved as we respond to a rise in threats to research integrity. ISI analysts first reviewed Highly Cited Papers™ from the last decade to create a list of preliminary candidates. Enhanced qualitative filters were then used to identify publication anomalies including extreme levels of hyper-authorship, excessive self-citation, or unusual patterns of group citation activity, which warrant exclusion from the list.
