Global bibliometric analysis - "Highly Cited Researchers 2020"

Thirteen researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are among the most cited in their respective fields. This is shown by the current edition of the ranking "Highly Cited Researchers".

In their publications, scientists cite the most important papers previously published on the respective topic. The frequency of citations is therefore a good indicator of the quality and worldwide recognition of a research work and its authors. Using the "Web of Science" database, which records scientific publications from a wide range of disciplines, the US company Clarivate Analytics once a year identifies the "Highly Cited Researchers".

The current edition of the ranking lists the scientists who were cited most frequently in their respective fields from 2009 to 2019. Researchers who were cited frequently in various fields are listed in the "Cross-Field" category.
