The list of the top 2% of scientists in the world is the result of a project jointly conducted by Elsevier Database and the team of Professor John P. A. Ioannidis of Stanford University, and is published on the Mendeley Data website of Elsevier Database. The list is based on scores of six citation indicators, including the number of citations, h factor, and hm factor. The top 2% of scientists in the world are selected from nearly 7 million scientists based on “career influence” and “annual influence”. There are 22 fields and 176 sub-fields; being selected among the top 2% of the world’s top scientists means that the scholar has a high global influence in his research field and has made outstanding contributions to the development of this field.
