On the list of the 1% most cited scientists of the past ten years are twenty scientists from the Radboud university medical center and/or Radboud University. This means that their work is widely used by (international) fellow scientists. The Netherlands contributes no fewer than 207 scientists, placing us sixth in the ranking, behind the United States, China, the United Kingdom, Australia and Germany.

The annual list, consisting of 6600 scientists, was unveiled by the American company Clarivate Analytics. On this annual ranking are researchers who can be shown to have a significant impact in their scientific field or fields by having published multiple papers that have been the most cited during the past ten years. Eleven of the twenty researchers are ranked in the 2020 Highly Cited Researchers category Cross-field: they are cited in multiple fields.
