16 FHSS scholars ranked world’s top 2% scientists

31 Mar 2021

16 FHSS academic staff members have been listed among the top 2% scientists in a global list released by the Stanford University.

The ranking method is based on standardized citation metrics developed by a group of scientists led by John PA Ioannidis, a statistician at Stanford University. The scientists were grouped into 22 subject fields and 176 sub-fields using the indicators, which included information on citations, an individual’s scientific research output, co-authorship and a composite indicator for career-long citation impact up to the end of 2019.

Congratulations to our top scientists on being ranked top in the world! This recognition shows their influence in their fields and demonstrates FHSS’s dedication in conducting world-class research.
