December 14, 2022;
The new edition of the Stanford/Elsevier citation database has recently been published by
Stanford University. The comprehensive dataset spans 22 disciplines with 174 subfields and shows
which scientists are at the very top of their respective field, taking into account variations in
citation density between individual disciplines.
Seven SFB-TRR 161 project leaders made it onto the list and are thus among the top 2% of
researchers cited in their fields in 2021:
- For the subfield “Human Factors”,
(A07) ranks 43 out of a total of 14.025 most cited scientists worldwide, while
(C06) reaches 52
- In the field “Software Engineering”,
(A01, A04) ranks 41 out of 21.494, while
(A01, B01, INF, Ö, MGK) occupies rank 42 and
(A03) rank 56.
- In the subfield “Artificial Intelligence & Image Processing”,
(A05) ranks 27 out of 321.592 scientists.
(D04, INF, Ö, MGK) ranks 39 out of 20.000 researchers in the subfield “Bioinformatics”.
Congratulations to all!
About the Stanford/Elsevier citation database
In 2019, researchers from Stanford University (Ioannidis et al. 2019) published a ranking of the
world's most-cited scholars. This was highly acclaimed for its methodology and scope because it
combined various citation indicators calculated based on data from Scopus (Elsevier). The most
recent edition of the dataset was published in September 2022 and lists almost 200,000 top-cited
scientists, including standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted
hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator
