[Paper Express] Will Highly Cited Scholars Enhance Academic Output and Influence? -- Double Verification from the Overall and Individual Level


Abstract:The highly cited scholars have a certain endogenous promotion and external halo effect for researchers, so can the evaluation enhance the productivity and influence of scholars? If so, is the positive impact prevalent among the vast majority of award-winning researchers? The paper examines the relationship between highly cited scholars and academic productivity and influence at the overall and individual level, using output data from highly cited scientists in the mathematics discipline of Corey Vian. According to the overall average output and individual output time series curve of highly cited scholars, the paper analyzes the four career development paths of highly cited scholars in China. The study found that the highly cited scholars had a certain promoting effect on the influence of researchers. After the mathematics researchers obtained the title of highly cited scholars, the output of papers did not rise but fell, but the influence of papers increased significantly.

Abstract:The highly cited researchers have a certain endogenous promotion effect and exogenous halo effect for scholars. So does being accredited enhance the productivity and impact of academics?If so,is that positive impact prevalent among the vast majority of award-winning researchers?The paper examines the relationship between highly cited researchers and academic productivity and impact at both an aggregate and individual level,using output data from Clarivate Analytics mathematics disciplines' highly cited researchers. Based on the overall average output of highly cited researchers versus individual output time series curve,the paper analyzes four career paths of highly cited researchers in China. The study found that being rated as a highly cited researchers has a certain facilitating effect on the influence of researchers. After researchers in mathematical disciplines received the highly cited researcher designation,the output of the papers did not increase but decreased,but the impact of the papers increased significantly.
