Six UEA professors have been named in the annual Highly Cited Researchers list for 2023, which celebrates some of the most influential researchers in the world today.
The Clarivate Web of Science Group list, now in its tenth year, represents those researchers ranking in the top 1% by citations for their specific fields of expertise.
The citation analysis identifies influential researchers that is determined by their peers around the globe. Being highly cited in a particular research field is earned by delivering high quality research throughout a researcher’s career.
The UK has the third largest amount of citations worldwide, behind China and USA, with 574 (8.1%) researchers listed. The appearance of six researchers from the University of East Anglia on the list is a measure of the exceptional impact that scientists based at the University are making globally.
Congratulations to the six UEA researchers named on the list. They are:
