Citation ranking "Web of Science” lists HIH researchers again

Professor Ulf Ziemann and Professor Mathias Jucker are among the world's most cited scientists again this year, according to a recent analysis by Clarivate Analytics. Of the world’s population of scientists, highly cited researchers are 1 in 1,000.

The citation list is compiled by the information and technology company Clarivate Analytics once a year. For this purpose, the company evaluates its “Web of Science” citation data bank. The current ranking lists more than 6,900 scientists, including 369 researchers from Germany. This puts Germany in fourth place after the USA, China and the United Kingdom.

In addition to many other criteria, such as impact factors or major international prizes, citation frequency is an important indicator of the scientific reputation and excellence of an institution and its researchers. Frequently cited articles are of high importance and give the authors a high international visibility. When publications are cited, this means that the published results have advanced the research of other scientists.
