TUS Faculty Member Chosen as a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics for Fourth Year in a Row

On Wednesday, November 16th, Clarivate announced its 2022 list of Highly Cited Researchers, a list of influential scientific researchers and their associated institutions, and Professor Shinichi Komaba of the Faculty of Science Division I, Department of Applied Chemistry was selected among them.

Professor Komaba has made the list every year since 2019, making this the fourth year in a row that he has been chosen, and, in 2021 and now 2022, Professor Komaba has been the only TUS faculty member chosen (a total of 100 researchers were chosen from Japan).

The aim of the Highly Cited Researchers list is to identify and record those researchers who have had a significant impact on the research community, choosing scientists and social scientists who have published multiple papers that were in the top 1% of most cited papers worldwide for a given field in a given publication year and that have greatly influenced subsequent research.

Professor Komaba, whose research focuses on next-generation storage battery materials, biofuel cells, and electrochemical sensors, has been chosen as a highly influential researcher in the "Chemistry" category based on the frequency with which his published papers have been cited in the field of chemistry.

TUS Faculty Member Chosen as a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics for Third Year in a Row

Professor Shinichi Komaba

I owe my selection for the Highly Cited Researchers list four years in a row to the research papers on next-generation batteries and other research topics which I and my colleagues have published and which have been cited by numerous others around the world amidst increasingly intense, global competition in the area of next-generation battery research. My lab includes students from the TUS "Faculty of Science Division I, Department of Applied Chemistry" and "Graduate School of Science, Department of Chemistry," and I am thrilled at the recognition that this selection represents for the current and former students who helped in obtaining the results used in these papers.
As a faculty member committed to helping TUS raise its global profile, I will continue my research into next-generation batteries for the sake of helping build a more carbon-neutral society.
