Top cited authors from India are being recognised by a new IOP Publishing award.

The award is for corresponding authors from India, for work published across the whole IOP Publishing journal portfolio in the past three years (2015-2017).

The winners are authors of the top one per cent of the most-cited papers in each subject category. Winning review authors are those whose work is in the top 10 most cited reviews published in the last three years.

Antonia Seymour, IOP Publishing’s Publishing Director, said: “As India’s influence and status in the field of international research continues to grow, we are proud to recognise the contribution of outstanding scientists from this country.”

The 36 winning authors’ work covers Physics; Materials, Biosciences, Astronomy and Astrophysics, and Mathematical Sciences. Between them, they received 838 citations from 2015 to 2017.

The winning review author, meanwhile, received a total of 45 citations for their review papers.
