13 academic staff (including retired staff) are among the world's top 2% of scientists of their main disciplines for career-long citation impact, according to an index compiled by Stanford University.
Prof. Felix Chan was ranked 10th in the field of Operations Research (Field Size: 23,455).
The scholars were named in the “Updated science-wide author databases of standardised citation indicators”, compiled by Stanford University where a research team, led by Prof. John Ioannidis, created the database of close to 160,000 top scientists across the world on the basis of standardised citation indicators. 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.
