SimTech scientists in the top range for citations

November 25, 2022 / hkom/sä

The latest Stanford/Elsevier database on citations in 2021 shows more than 200,000 scientists in the top 2% of their field worldwide when it comes to the frequency with which their publications were cited in 2021. 121 of them are (or were) employed at the University of Stuttgart. 22 of them belong to the SimTech cluster of excellence.

In 2019, researchers from Stanford University (Ioannidis et al. 2019) published a ranking of the world's most-cited scholars. This was highly acclaimed for its methodology and scope because it combined various citation indicators calculated based on data from Scopus (Elsevier).

In the most recent edition, the freely accessible, comprehensive dataset of the Stanford study shows which scholars are among the top 2% of each individual scientific field in terms of citations for 22 disciplines with 176 subfields. The study takes into account the fact that citation densities can vary considerably between individual disciplines – and also makes researchers at the top of their field within a rather low-citation area more visible.

The Stanford dataset on citations in 2021 lists a total of 121 scientists from the University of Stuttgart who are among the top 2% of the world’s most cited in their field. Among them are a couple of SimTech PIs and PRs. Four of them listed below with their respective occupied place:

  • Andreas Bulling (43 von 14.025 in Human Factors)
  • Paul Bürkner (31 von 20.301 in Statistics & Probability)
  • Albert Jeltsch (455 von 201.173 in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology)
  • Johannes Kästner (305 von 95.895 in Chemical Physics)

The others are

  • Carsten Scherer
  • Steffen Staab
  • Frank Leymann
  • Rainer Helmig
  • Frank Allgöwer
  • Jürgen Pleiss
  • Christian Holm
  • Andreas Köhn
  • Ingo Steinwart
