The Clarivate Analytics International (formerly Thomson Reuter) has named two University of Jordan (UJ) professors Ibrahim Al-Jarrah and Hossam Faris, among the list of Highly Cited Researchers 2021 in the field of Computer Science.
The list of Highly Cited Researchers in Computer Science included 110 scholars from all around the world, demonstrating the significance of their scholarly literature and publications, its originality and broad impact.
The 2021 list contains about 6,600 Highly Cited Researchers; 3,800 in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences and about 2,800 Highly Cited Researchers identified as having exceptional performance across several fields.
According to Clarivate™, the list focuses on contemporary research achievement: only highly cited papers in science and social sciences journals indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection during the 11- year period 2010 to 2020 were surveyed.
Furthermore, highly cited papers are defined as those that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year. This percentile-based selection method removes the citation advantage of older papers relative to recently published ones, since papers are weighed against others in the same annual cohort.
Across all fields, only three researchers from Jordan were in this year's list. As for the Highly Cited Researchers list in the Computer Science field, for the first time, the list included researchers from Jordan; Dr. Ibrahim Al-Jarrah and Dr. Hossam Faris.
