The study conducted by scientists led by Professor John P. A. Ioannidis from Stanford University has announced a list comprising the top 2% of scientists in a diverse spectrum of scientific fields for 2022. The Stanford University rankings system began in 2019, under which the experts categorized scientists into 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields. Globally, 200,409 scientists fall in the top 2 percent around the world. The ranking is based on publicly available databases of 100,000 top scientists that provides standardized information on citations, citations to papers in different authorship positions, co-authorship adjusted, hm-index, h-index, and a composite indicator.
Our heartiest congratulations and well wishes to our two Faculty members on their extraordinary achievement!
