Chulalongkorn University Celebrates The Researcher on Highly Cited Researchers 2021 List (Professor Michael Maes)

Chulalongkorn University is proud to announce that our academics have been named on the annual Highly Cited Researchers™ 2021 list from Clarivate.

Professor Michael Maes, Department of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, was listed as a Highly Cited Researcher 2021 in the category of Neuroscience and Behavior by Clarivate. The highly anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields by publishing multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by field and publication year citations in the Web of Science™ citation index.

The methodology that determines the “who’s who” of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information™ at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries and research institutions where these citation elite are based.

This year’s list includes 24 Nobel laureates, including five announced this year. Also included are 77 Citation Laureates™: individuals recognized by Clarivate as ‘of Nobel class’ and potential Nobel Prize recipients through citation analysis.

Some truly extraordinary Highly Cited Researchers appear in more than one Essential Science Indicators (ESI)™ field. Of the researchers named Highly Cited in the 21 ESI fields, 23 researchers showed exceptional broad performance, recognized for being highly cited in three or more fields. They are a truly global group – in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

David Pendlebury, the Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate, said: “It is increasingly important for nations and institutions to recognize and support the exceptional researchers who are driving the expansion of the world’s knowledge. This list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers at Chulalongkorn University who are having a significant impact on the research community, as evidenced by the rate at which their work is being cited by their peers. The research they have contributed is fueling the innovation, sustainability, health and security that is key for our society’s future.”
