I have been recognized as one of the top 2% scientists in the world across all fields and subfields of research. This distinction was conferred by Stanford University, based in the United States, and the list was recently released.

November 2022: Stanford University (USA) has recently released a list that represents the most-cited scientists across all fields and subfields of research by analyzing the quality of research cited by other researchers in year 2022 – the World’s Top 2% Scientists. This ranking, considered as the most prestigious worldwide, is based on the bibliometric information contained in the Scopus database, and includes more than 180,000 researchers from the more than 8 million scientists considered to be active worldwide, with 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields taken into account. The Stanford ranking is based on a composite citation index that excludes self-citations and considers the position of researchers in the authorship of papers, with emphasis on single, first and last authorship. The same index including self-citations is provided for comparison.
