Eight HKIAS Members rank among the World's top 2% in Stanford University list

22 February 2021


According to metrics compiled by Stanford University, over 140 full-time faculty members at the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) are listed among the top 2% of the world's most highly cited scientists, including eight Hong Kong Institute for Advanced Study (HKIAS) members. Professor Sir Colin Blakemore, Professor Philippe G. Ciarlet, Professor Way Kuo, Professor Chain-Tsuan Liu, Professor Jian Lu, Professor David J. Srolovitz, Senior Fellows of HKIAS*; Professor Tei-Wei Kuo, Former Visiting Fellow of HKIAS; and Professor Jacob C. Huang, Executive Director of HKIAS are among those eminent scholars.

The Stanford-listed scholars have demonstrated substantial influence in various disciplines through the publication of multiple highly cited papers ranked according to citation impact from 1996 to 2019. Disciplinary differences in terms of citation norms are taken care of since the list identifies the top 2% of scientists in their own areas of specialty.

This latest report by Stanford University was prepared by a team of experts led by Professor John Ioannidis, of Stanford University. The publicly available database provides continually updated information on the work of the world’s top scientists including standardised information on citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations of papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator.
