Professors Xiangfeng Duan, David Eisenberg, and Richard Kaner have been named on the annual Highly Cited Researchers™ 2022 list from Clarivate, placing them among world’s most influential scholars, based on citations.

Since 2002, Clarivate has released an annual Web of Science list of researchers who have demonstrated compelling and broad influence across various disciplines. Comprising nearly 7,000 researchers from around the world, the list is compiled by the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate based on quantitative and qualitative data collected from scholarly publication of papers that ranked in the top 1% by peer citations during the previous decade. Clarivate is an international analytics firm that specializes in academia, scientific research and intellectual property.

2022 most cited influential scholars – Professors Xiangfeng Duan, David Eisenberg, and Richard Kaner.

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.

David Pendlebury, Head of Research Analysis at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate said: “Research fuels the race for knowledge and it is important that nations and institutions celebrate the individuals who drive the wheel of innovation. The Highly Cited Researchers list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers at UCLA 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. These individuals are helping to transform human ingenuity into our world’s greatest breakthroughs – and it is an honor to celebrate their achievements.”
