According to data analysis made by 6GWorld, almost half the most cited researchers in the field of computer science conduct work specifically about 6G or technologies directly connected to the next generation of mobile communications.

Released earlier this week, Clarivate’s Highly Cited Researchers recognised 6,849 professionals whose academic production ranks in the top 1% by citations for their field and publication year in the Web of Science over the past decade.

The company nominated 96 individuals in Computer Science, from which 47 have actively researched 6G in recent years. Only two women made the Computer Science list, while none is in the 6G one.

Overall, 40 educational institutions appear in the 6G cohort. China tops the list with 12 names, followed by the United Kingdom (10) and the United States (6).

The University of Oulu (Finland), University of London (United Kingdom), University of Electronic Science & Technology of China (China), Southeast University (China), Queen Mary University London (United Kingdom), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), and the Khalifa University of Science & Technology (United Arab Emirates) lead the list with two representatives each.
