Congratulations to Professors Ceder, Persson, Ramesh, Ritchie and Wu!
According to Clarivate's website, "Highly Cited Researchers have demonstrated significant and broad influence in their field(s) of research.
Each researcher selected has authored multiple Highly Cited Papers™ which rank in the top 1% by citations for their field(s) and publication year in the Web of Science™ over the past decade. However, citation activity is not the sole selection indicator. A preliminary list based on citation activity is then refined using qualitative analysis and expert judgement.
Of the world’s population of scientists and social scientists, Highly Cited Researchers™ are 1 in 1,000."
