18 CHEM colleagues are recognised as Top 2% of the world’s most cited scholars by the Stanford-Elsevier indicators 2022


Congratulations to our 18 CHEM colleagues on being recognized as Top 2% of the World’s Most Cited Scholars by the Stanford-Elsevier indicators which have been published in October 2022. Career-long data were updated to end-of-2021 and single recent year data pertained to citations received during calendar year 2021. The selection was based on the top 100,000 scientists by citation score (with and without self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above in the sub-field. 195,605 scientists were included in the career-long database and 200,409 scientists were included in the single recent year dataset.
