The best of the best highly cited researchers at VIB

13 January 2019
We are very proud of the fact that the number of ‘highly cited researchers’ from VIB increases every year,
with a total of 18 VIB scientists currently listed by Clarivate Analytics – formerly the IP and science business
of Thomson Reuters.

Every year in autumn, Clarivate Analytics publishes a list of highly cited researchers within 21 fields of
science. The 2018 list is now available and covers 11 years of research output (2006-2016). For every
category, highly cited scientists are identified as those publishing works with citation counts ranking within
the top 1% in their fields during the period under consideration. For the first time this year, Clarivate
Analytics has improved its algorithm, which now identifies highly cited scientists who actively publish in
several fields (listed under the ‘cross field’ category in the table).
Congratulations to all our scientists listed and their teams!
