This database of top-cited scientists has been created by a team of scientists at Stanford University, USA, and Elsevier BV, a Netherlands-based publishing company. According to the Stanford – Elsevier report published last week, the rank is based on the top 100,000 by C-scores (number of citations, excluding self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above. It includes scientists spread over 22 fields and 176 sub-fields across all disciplines.
