The list includes the two percent most cited researchers in 22 scientific disciplines and 174 sub-fields. The basis of the list is citations up to and including 2022.Over 200,000 researchers are included in the database for the last year and the career-long database.
The ranking is built upon standardised information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator (c-score).The data shows partly the most cited researchers in 2022, partly during the entire time period 1960-2022. This method provides a comprehensive picture of the researchers' impact and influence within their respective fields.
"The Stanford list for this year demonstrates that IEI's research holds up very well, both in international competition and in comparison to other departments at LiU. Many of our divisions have deliberately focused on high-quality research and publications in recent years, and this measurement shows that it pays off in terms of significant influence in their specialised areas. It is particularly pleasing that there are several researchers from IEI on the list, representing various divisions across both the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Faculty of Science and Engineering. This indicates that we have a research environment that can be compared to the the very best in the world," says Mats Abrahamsson, Deputy Head with a focus on research at IEI.
