Angel Calderon on where the HiCi researchers are

His report is HERE

In Features this morning Mr Calderon analyses Clarivate’s new Highly Cited Researchers list and reports that in Australia the big five research unis account for just over 50 per cent. Globally the big increase in share is by China, from 4.6 per cent in 2015 to 16.2 per cent now. “We are likely to see China stepping ahead of the United States in the share of HiCis within a decade, if not sooner,” he writes.

The list matters, really matters, to university managements who care about rankings – HiCi researchers account for 20 per cent of the Academic Ranking of World Universities and changes in their number can move a university up, or down, a few places.
