Clarivate Analytics, which publishes an annual list of the most cited scientists worldwide, have once again named SCU’s Xu Zeshui “Highly Cited Researcher” in two separate categories, computer science and engineering, based on his voluminous publications in these fields. The Yangtze River scholar from SCU’s Business School was named among the world’s “most influential scientific minds” in computer science and engineering in previous years, too.
Clarivate Analytics “Highly Cited Researchers” is selected from the “top 1% most-cited in their respective fields over a recent 11-year period.” This year, more than 3,000 internationally leading scientists were selected from within 21 natural science and social science fields, hailing from 900 institutions, having authored a total of over 130,000 papers. America is most strongly represented among “Highly Cited Researchers” with 1,644 scientists (up 12% from 2016); Britain comes in second place with 344 top researchers; China (excluding Taiwan Province) ranks third with 249 scientists, up 41% from last year’s ranking, which makes China the country with the most substantial increase in the number of most cited researchers over the past year.
