FOWI researchers ranked in Stanford study of the world's top 2% scientists

Three researchers from the Future of Work Institute have been featured among the World's Top 2% Scientists List, according to a Stanford University study.

This study features 100,000 scientists and recognised Professors Sharon Parker, Marylene Gagne and Mark Griffin as the world's most-cited researchers, being ranked respectively 119th, 255th and 500th among more than 35,000 researchers in the sub-area "Business and Management".

Looking at several indicators, this study analysed data from 1996 through 2019, covering ~7 million scientists in 22 major fields ranging from chemistry, engineering, economics and business.

The study was released on 16th October 2020 in PLOS Biology by Prof. John P. A. Loannidis of the Stanford University, USA and his team.

The database was created to provide updated analyses and a publicly available database of 100,000 top Scientists that provide standardized information on citations, h-index(an index to measure an individual’s scientific research output ), co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator. Such citation metric provides a basis to measure and reflect the impact of a published journal.
