Three UNIST researchers have distinguished themselves with inclusion in the 2017 list of Highly Cited Researchers, a yearly distinction released by Clarivate Analytics that was formerly part of Thomson Reuters.

The methodology included Essential Science Indicators to limit the disadvantage of recently-published papers relative to older ones, and to include early and mid-career scientists who may have fewer papers published.
The yearly list is based on the number of citations for papers published over an 11-year period from January 2005 to December 2015. Highly Cited Papers are defined as those that ranked among the top 1% most cited for their subject field and year of publication, earning them the mark of exceptional impact.
