Vice President Kagawa and Engineering Professor She Jin-Hua Ranked Internationally in the Top 2% of Scientists Most Cited in Their Fields
Stanford University has released its “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators,” a comprehensive list identifying the world’s top 2% of scientists most cited in their respective fields, and both Vice President Kagawa Yutaka and Engineering Professor She Jin-Hua were selected.
The list consists of the top 200,000 scientists who have authored highly influential scientific papers. Rankings are determined by calculating standardized information that emphasizes the researchers’ degree of contribution to the papers, including factors such as total citations (excluding self-citations), h-index, number of single-authored papers, number of individually cited papers, co-authorship adjustment index, and the ratio of total citations to individually cited papers, based on bibliographic databases (Scopus). Due to its multifaceted analyses based on a wide range of composite indictors, it is considered one of the most influential rankings of scientists in the world.
Vice President Kagawa and Professor She were selected as members of the top 2% scientists in the world in both the long-term (career) and year 2021 (single year) categories out of more than nine million scientists for their high levels of influence in the research fields of “Materials” and “Industrial Engineering & Automation,” respectively.
