For the fourth consecutive year, IOP Publishing (IOPP) is celebrating the significance of Indian research with its ‘top-cited paper awards’.

The awards are presented to corresponding authors from India who are in the top one per cent of the most-cited articles published within IOPP’s portfolio of journals between 2018 and 2020.

The top-cited papers spanned six subject areas, covering astronomy and astrophysics, biosciences, environmental sciences, materials, mathematics and physics. Together, the 30 papers received 817 citations in total. In addition, the most-cited review papers received 113 citations in total.

Elaine Tham, associate director (APAC & Partnerships) at IOP Publishing, said: “The rate at which these papers are being cited by others demonstrates that the pioneering work of Indian scientists is having a significant impact on the global research community. These awards are just one way of recognising and celebrating that influence.”
