Only 10 Indian Scientists in list

Only 10 Indian Scientists in list

According to a report published by Clarivate Analytics; only 10 Indian scientists featured in the list of 4000 highly cited researchers across the world.

It is only 0.25% of the 4000 highly-cited scientists of the world.

China stands at third position with nearly 482 scientists.

Sweden (53%), Austria (53%), Singapore (47%), Denmark (47%), China (43%) and South Korea (42%) are among the nations that have 40% of their Highly Cited Researchers selected in the cross-field category.

India and China used to be on the same page in terms of contribution about 15 years ago but now China accounts for nearly 16%.

What experts say?

The list highlights the need to improve the research ecosystem in India and deal with problems like predatory journals. According to experts, Indian academicians lack focus on quality research. 

India has a negligible representation in the world’s highly cited researchers primarily because the nature of research is theoretical.
