A report by the name of ‘Highly Cited Researchers’ was recently compiled by Clarivate Analytics. It highlights researchers having significant influence in their chosen area of study through the publication of cited research papers in the last decade.
The Clarivate report shortlists researchers working on some of the world’s most significant challenges. This year’s list includes 26 Nobel laureates and recognizes 6,400 researchers across 21 fields.
Of the world’s population of scientists and social scientists, Highly Cited Researchers represent 1 in 1,000. Among those researchers, A Pakistani computer scientist has also made it to the list. His name is Dr. Mubashir Husain Rehmani.
