19 School of Engineering Researchers in the top 2% of the world’s leading academics

16 School of Engineering Researchers in the top 2% of the world’s leading academics

Congratulations to the 19 School of Engineering researchers who have been named in Stanford University’s global Scientists list recognising the top 2% of the world’s leading researchers released on 16th October 2020 in the journal PLOS Biology. The article can be found here. The names of the researchers listed were obtained from University staff listings that can be accessed and searched online.

Academics were classified into 176 subject fields using the Science-Metrix journal classification system. Led by Professor John Ioannidis of Stanford University, the research team has created a database of about 160,000 top academics of the world, derived from a worldwide total of 6.88M scientists who have published at least five papers. The researchers were given a ‘c score’ based on standardised citation indicators, which include information on citations, an individual’s research output or H-index, co-authorship, and a composite indicator for career-long impact. The goal was that this database was comprehensive and that it takes into account a large number of scientific fields.
