“Being acknowledged by Thomson Reuters as a Highly Cited Researcher meant that an individual was among the 250 most-cited researchers in a defined discipline within a specific time-period. Citation is a direct measure of influence on the literature of a subject, and it is also a strong indicator of scientific contribution, since it is derived from a pattern of interaction among millions of published articles. When one researcher cites another’s work, he/she is acknowledging the relevance of that work to the current study. The interaction is both highly specific, and highly informed; it is a statement by an author of the scholarly kinship of two works.” Source: www.highlycited.com
