‘Who’s who’ of international researchers ranks top 1% of scientists by citations for their field and year

Six of UOW’s top academics have been named on the annual Highly Cited Researchers 2020 list from Clarivate.

The list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1 per cent by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science citation index.

All six of the UOW researchers on the list are from the Australian Institute for Innovative Materials (AIIM).

Five of the researchers – Distinguished Professor Shi Xue Dou, Distinguished Professor Hua Kun Liu, Distinguished Professor Zaiping Guo, Distinguished Professor Yoshio Bando and Professor Shulei Chou – are from the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials (ISEM) in AIIM. All five also appeared on last year’s Highly Cited Researchers list. Professor Guo is also a member of UOW’s School of Mechanical, Materials, Mechatronic and Biomedical Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences.

The sixth highly cited researcher, Professor Jun Chen (pictured above), is from the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI), another research centre within AIIM. He also appeared on the Highly Cited Researchers List in 2018.

UOW Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) Professor Jennifer Martin AC commended the researchers for their exceptional work.
