The most cited scientists worldwide - Nine TUM professors in the "Highly Cited Researchers" ranking
Nine TUM researchers are among the world's most respected scientific minds. This is shown by the new edition of the ranking "Highly Cited Researchers", for which citations in scientific publications were evaluated.
In their publications, scientists refer to the most important articles that have appeared so far on the respective topic. The frequency of citations is therefore a good indicator of research quality. In order to identify the "Highly Cited Researchers", the US company Clarivate Analytics evaluates its "Web of Science" database, which covers a broad spectrum of scientific publications.
