Episode description

Clarivate recently unveiled its annual list of Highly Cited Researchers, the “who’s who” of the world’s influential scientists and social scientists. The list from the Institute for Scientific Information recognizes some 6,600 researchers for demonstrating significant influence among their peers, as evidenced by the production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year, as indexed in the Web of Science over the last decade.

Joining us today are David Pendlebury, Head of Research Analysis at the Institute for Scientific Information; Professor Liu Bin, Vice President of Research and Technology at the National University of Singapore; and Dr. Robin Drennan, Director of Research and Innovation at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg in South Africa.
