Each year, the Web of Science Group identifies the world’s most influential researchers – those who have demonstrated significant and broad influence, reflected in their publication of multiple papers that have been frequently cited by their peers over the last decade.
In 2019, fewer than 6,300, or 0.1%, of the world's researchers, across 21 research fields, have earned this exclusive distinction.

The list of Highly Cited Researchers 2019 identifies researchers at over 1,200 institutions across more than 60 countries, and includes 23 Nobel Laureates – three of whom received a Nobel prize in 2019.
