The basis for this annual rating is the citation database "Web of Science". It shows shows often publications by a researcher were cited in the last decade – between 2010 and 2020 in the latest ranking. Next to the number of publications, a scientist’s citation count is considered a measure of the scientific relevance of their contributions. The "Highly Cited Researchers" ranking currently includes around 6,600 scientists worldwide from 21 research fields, who have published several highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year.
