The list of the 1 percent most cited scientists of the past ten years contains seventeen scientists who are affiliated with Radboudumc or Radboud University. The list was published by Clarivate Analytics, an American company that offers services in the area of scientific research (e.g. Web of Science).
The annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade.
Ten of seventeen researchers in the list of Highly Cited Researchers 2020 are classified in the ‘Cross-Field’ category, meaning they have been cited in different fields. Clarivate Analytics wants to use this category to break down the “artificial walls of conventional disciplinary categories”.
