UCSI dean among world’s top-cited researchers

Distinguished Professor Dr Ooi Keng Boon (pic) is among the top 0.1% of the world’s most cited scientists.

The dean of UCSI University’s Graduate Business School made the Clarivate’s prestigious 2023 Highly Cited Researcher List for the first time, joining an exclusive group of researchers who have earned this distinction.

Only 11 researchers from Malaysian universities and research institutes made the list this year, a press release dated Nov 28 from UCSI read.

The list recognised a total of 6,849 thought leaders worldwide.

The significance of his latest feat was not lost on Prof Ooi, who said he was honoured to be acknowledged by the global scientific community.

“This milestone captures the significance of my work over the years and I’m glad that my efforts are paying off and benefiting others.

“Consequential research is very demanding and time-consuming. I could not have done this alone and I would like to thank my family, UCSI and my co-authors for their support,” said Prof Ooi, who has a Google H-index of 85, a Scopus H-index of 69 and a Web of Science H-index of 59.

He steers the research direction at the varsity’s Graduate Business School and his passion for research has influenced his colleagues — three of whom joined Prof Ooi in the recently-published World’s Top 2% of Scientists list by Stanford.

According to Clarivate, Highly Cited Researchers are 1 in 1,000, as denoted by the top 0.1% classification.

To qualify, each researcher must author multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations in their fields over the past decade. The list is filtered further using qualitative analysis and expert opinion.
