Each year, the Web of Science Group identifies the world's most influential scientists based on their citations by other researchers. The few selected researchers who have been cited most frequently in the last ten years receive the "Highly Cited Researcher" award. In 2019, less than 6,300 or 0.1% of researchers worldwide in 21 research areas received this exclusive award - one of them is Prof. Dr. Ulrich S. Schubert! Since 2002, the list of Highly Cited Researchers has identified researchers and social scientists who have shown extraordinary influence in their field.
A complete list of this year's winners and further information can be found here.
