It is a matter of great pride for Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) that Stanford University, USA has included 21 researchers from the institution to its list of top 2% scientists worldwide. The list, released by the world-renowned university a few days back, was prepared by a team of experts led by Prof. John Ioannidis, the eminent Professor at Stanford University and published by Elsevier BV,. Stanford University scientists have created a database of top-cited scientists that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator (c-score). They show separate data for career-long and for single recent year impact. Career-long data are updated to end-of-2021, and single current-year data pertain to citations received during the calendar year 2021. The selection is based on a percentile rank of 2% or above in the sub-field. They classified scientists into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields.
