BDIC Provost Paul Fanning named to be in top 2% of scientists in the world
Thursday, 13 January, 2022
BDIC congratulates UCD BDIC Provost Paul Fanning for his recognition in a recently published, October 2021, list of the World's Top 2% Scientists, based on citation metrics.
Ranking of researchers for the list, produced by a team from Stanford University working with Elsevier B, is based on the bibliometric information contained in the Scopus database from the almost 9 million scientists considered to be research active, in 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields, worldwide. The list for 2021 includes roughly 180,000 researchers.
The ranking method is based on standardized citation metrics developed by a group of scientists led by John P.A. Ioannidis, a professor at Stanford University. This top 2% were assigned a composite citation score or “c-score” based on standardized citation indicators, which include numbers of citations, a commonly used metric known as “h-index” which reflects an individual’s research output, co-authorship and a composite indicator for career-long impact.
