Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) are among the world’s most highly cited researchers whose research in one or more fields have consistently supported and inspired other researchers globally.

A total of 27 NUS researchers were named in the global Highly Cited Researchers 2019 list released by Clarivate Analytics today. These NUS researchers were recognised by their peers as outstanding researchers in the fields of Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics and Business, Engineering, Materials Science, Physics and more.

The Highly Cited Researchers 2019 draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute for Scientific Information at the Web of Science Group. This year, some 6,000 unique researchers have been named Highly Cited Researchers across 21 fields of study, with over 3,500 in specific fields and close to 2,500 for cross-field performance.

NUS Deputy President (Research and Technology) Professor CHEN Tsuhan said, “We are extremely proud of the achievements of our NUS researchers whose work in their respective fields has created a positive impact on the research community, both locally and internationally. Their world-class research reflects the University’s scientific excellence, and more importantly, reaffirms Singapore’s standing in the global research landscape.”

“Among the 27 NUS researchers named in the 2019 list, more than half were acknowledged for their work beyond one discipline. This is also a testament of the University’s collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach to research and innovation, which we are confident will position NUS well to become one of the most innovative universities in the world,” Prof Chen added.
