Skoltech researchers on the ‘Ioannidis list’ of top 2% cited scientists in their fields

Twenty-three Skoltech researchers have landed on the list of the global top 2% of scientists in their respective fields by citation impact, compiled by Stanford professor John Ioannidis and published recently as a PLoS Biology paper. 

Ioannidis, who is well known for his research integrity efforts, first published his open access database of 100,000 top scientists by scientific fields in 2019. It provides standardized information on citations, h-index, coauthorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator, all ostensibly to ensure transparency and limit the misuse of citation metrics.

The updated version uses citation data from Scopus as of May 6, 2020 to assess scientists for career-long citation impact up until the end of 2019. All researchers are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. It also includes those not in the top 100,000 according to the composite index but nevertheless within the top 2% of scientists of their main subfield discipline. 

Natalia G. Berloff, Janusz Bialek, Michael Chertkov, Andrzej Cichocki, Edward Crawley, Mikhail Gelfand, Rupert Gerzer, Xavier Gonze, Alexander Korsunsky, Igor Krichever, Mikhail Lebedev, Victor Lempitsky, Nikita Nekrasov, Artem Oganov, Andrei Okounkov, Ivan Oseledets, Konstantin Severinov, Stanislav Smirnov, Keith J. Stevenson, Gleb Sukhorukov, Sergei Tretiak, Vladimir Zakharov and Denis Zorin have all been included in the new version of the database.
