We chose your field based on the information you provided us in your profile settings. That means if you selected “Condensed matter physics” as your research field, we compared your stats with other researchers who also selected that as their field. 

If you have added two or more research fields to your profile, we chose the field that you share with the largest number of researchers on Publons. In the event of a tie, we randomly selected the result.
