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”, Andreas Bulling (A07) ranks 43 out of a total of 14.025 most cited scientists worldwide, while Albrecht Schmidt  (C06) reaches 52 nd
  • In the field “Software Engineering”, Oliver Deussen (A01, A04) ranks 41 out of 21.494, while Daniel Weiskopf (A01, B01, INF, Ö, MGK) occupies rank 42 and Daniel Keim  (A03) rank 56.
  • In the subfield “Artificial Intelligence & Image Processing”, Dietmar Saupe (A05) ranks 27 out of 321.592 scientists.
  • Falk Schreiber (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 (c-score).
