The "Highly Cited Researchers" list is an annually published list of scientists and scholars who are honored for their outstanding publication work. Only publications in journals listed in the "Web of Science Core Collection" (currently comprising more than 20,000 international journals) are considered for the list. From the publications of these journals, the leading percentage is taken into account.

The list of "Highly Cited Researchers" for the year 2018 contains the names of approximately 6,000 researchers active worldwide. The statistics are based on the "Web of Science" database maintained by Clarivate Analytics, headquartered in Philadelphia, USA, which also calculates the "Journal Impact Factor" and publishes it annually.
