A total of 58 current and former faculty of Missouri S&T are among the top researchers in their field as measured by their career research records, and 72 current or former Missouri S&T researchers were among the best in their fields in 2022, according to a recent analysis of standardized citation indicators of the Elsevier Data Repository published by Stanford University.
The Stanford study published Oct. 4, 2023, analyzes citations, h-index, and other metrics of research productivity and impact including a composite indicator (c-score). The analysis provides listings of top-scientists based on career-long and single-year impact. The study classifies individuals into 22 scientific fields and 174 sub-fields. The fields include agriculture, biology, biomedical, built environment and design, chemistry, clinal medicine, economics and business, engineering, historical studies, information and communication technologies, mathematics and statistics, physics, psychology, public health, social sciences, and others.
The top 2% includes approximately 210,000 individuals from a field of over 9.6 million authors worldwide who have at least 5 papers published in the Elsevier Scopus database. Career-long data are updated through the end of 2022, and the selection is based on the top 100,000 researchers as determined by a composite citation metric known as a “c-score” (with and without self-citations) or by their percentile rank of 2% or above.
Those in the top 2% with an S&T affiliation include 23 Curators’ Distinguished Professors, two members of the National Academy of Inventors, one member of the National Academy of Engineering, two fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and 10 current or former directors of Missouri S&T research centers.
“These rankings show quantitatively the profound global impact of Missouri S&T researchers,” says Dr. Kamal Khayat, vice chancellor for research and innovation. “Their unwavering dedication to advancing knowledge in their respective fields is evident in the quantitative data presented. We applaud our researchers for their exceptional work, which stands as a testament to their expertise and commitment.”
S&T researchers included in the study are as follows. “Career” denotes those recognized for their career-long impact in their fields, “2022” denotes those recognized for their single-year research productivity for 2022, and “both” denotes individuals recognized for both their career-long impact and research productivity for 2022.
