The most recent edition of the Stanford/Elsevier citation database has recently been published
by Stanford University. The comprehensive dataset spans 22 disciplines with 176 subfields and shows
which scientists are at the very top of their respective field, taking into account variations in
citation density between individual disciplines.
Five SFB-TRR 161 members made it onto the list and are thus among the top 2% of researchers
cited in their fields in 2020. For the subfield “Human Factors”,
Andreas Bulling (A07) ranks 47 out of a total of 14.266 most cited scientists
Albrecht Schmidt (C06) reaches 62
nd place. In the field “Software Engineering”,
Keim (A03) ranks 7 out of 21.676, while
Daniel Weiskopf (A01, B01) occupies rank 212 and
Michael Sedlmair (A08) rank 248.
Congratulations to our members for this considerable achievement!
About the Stanford/Elsevier citation database
In 2019, researchers from Stanford University (Ioannidis et al. 2019) published a ranking of the

combined various citation indicators calculated based on data from Scopus (Elsevier). The most
recent edition of the dataset was published in October 2021 and comes in two versions: one
considering all citations between 1996 and 2020 and the other considering only citations in
