In today's Times of India there is a news report that there are ten Indians on the list of top 4000 scientists (0.25% of globe's highest cited) released by the firm Clarivate Analytics

India boasts of eminent science and social science institutes like IISc, IITs, TIFR, JNU, and Tiss, Yet, only 10 Indians figure among the world's top 1% highly-cited researchers in the two fields.- the leading name is that of Bharat Ratna C.N.R.Rao from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advance Science Research;

This list includes (2) Prof. Avinash Agarwal of IIT Kanpur, (3) Prof. Dinesh Mohan of JNU, Delhi, (4) Dr. Alok Mittal of Maulana Azad National Institute, Bhopal and (5) Dr. Jyoti Mittal (Alok and Jyoti are husband-wife, Jatiya is the only female researcher in the list), (6) Prof. Rajneesh Kumar of IIT Madras, (7) Dr. Sanjib Sahu of Institute of Life Science Bhubnesh, (Cool Dr. Rajeev K. Varshney of International Corp Research Institute (9) Dr.Sakthival Rathinaswamy of the University of Worcesthai and Coimbatore.

This year’s Highly Cited Researchers list includes 17 Nobel Laureates. It represents more than 60 nations, but more than 80% of them are from 10 nations and 70% from the first five – a remarkable concentration of top talent. The top 10 nations in order are the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Germany, Australia, the Netherlands, Canada, France, Switzerland and Spain.

Clarivate’s citation analysis identifies influential researchers as determined by their peers around the globe – those who have consistently won recognition in the form of high citation counts over a decade. The Web of Science serves as the basis for the regular listings of researchers whose citation records position them in the top 1% by citations for their field and year.

The United States leads among HCRs with 2,639 scientists followed by the United Kingdom’s 546 and China’s 482. Top three institutions producing world’s most highly cited researchers are: Harvard University (186), National Institutes of Health (148) and Stanford University (100). Chinese Academy of Sciences ranks 4th with 99 highly cited researchers.

Incidentally, despite the large number of institutions of excellence in India like IISc, the IITs, TIFR, JNU and TISS, Pakistan scores higher than the country vis-à-vis nations whose research output rose fastest in 2018. Pakistan ranked first according to a report published by Nature Magazine, which states that Egypt had 21% growth, while Pakistan’s growth was 21%.

“Emerging economies showed some of the largest increases in research output in 2018, according to estimates from the publishing-services company Clarivate Analytics. Egypt and Pakistan topped the list in percentage terms, with rises of 21% and 15.9%, respectively. …China’s publications rose by about 15%, and India, Brazil, Mexico and Iran all saw their output grow by more than 8% compared with 2017”.

Meanwhile, British ranking agency Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) has recently ranked 75 Indian universities among the top 500 Asian universities for 2019. Other South Asian universities figuring in the QS top universities report are 23 from Pakistani, six from Bangladesh and four from Sri Lanka.

In terms of the number of universities ranking in Asia’s top 500, China tops with 112 universities and India comes third with 75 universities after Japan with 89 top universities.
