Clarivate Recognizes University of Maryland Researchers as Highly Cited

Twenty-seven University of Maryland researchers have been recognized in Clarivate’s Highly Cited Researchers 2021 list.

ISI maintains the knowledge corpus upon which the Web of Science index and related data and services are built. The list includes influential researchers from around the world who have been the most frequently cited in their fields in the past decade, producing multiple papers ranking in the top 1% by citations for field and year in the Web of Science.
