On Wednesday last week, Clarivate published its annual list of Highly Cited Researchers 2020. Karin Ljung and Ondřej Novák are again under the top one percent of the world’s most highly cited researchers in the field of “Plant & Animal Science”. This is the third time that Ondřej Novák is on Clarivate’s list and the seventh time for Karin Ljung.
The methodology behind Clarivate’s list is based on citation analyses that determines the top one percent of Highly Cited Researchers using the Web of Science database. More than 6,000 researchers, in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences, and cross field categories were selected based on the number of highly cited papers they produced over an 11-year period from January 2009 to December 2019.
