17 Radboud researchers in top 1% by citations


The list of the 1 percent most cited scientists of the past ten years contains seventeen scientists who are affiliated with Radboud University or Radboud university medical center, in East Netherlands. The list was published today by Clarivate Analytics, an American company that offers services in the area of scientific research (such as Web of Science).


The annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade.

Ten of seventeen researchers in the list of Highly Cited Researchers 2020 are classified in the ‘Cross-Field’ category, meaning they have been cited in different fields. Clarivate Analytics wants to use this category to break down the “artificial walls of conventional disciplinary categories”.

Mihai Netea, professor in Experimental Internal Medicine, is classified as a Highly Cited researcher in two fields: Microbiology as well as Immunology.

The seventeen Radboud scientists on the list are:
