Ajman University has achieved an additional remarkable milestone with 11 of its faculty members being included in Stanford University's list of the top 2% of global scientists for the year 2023. This list encompasses a select group of researchers who have highly cited scientific publications and whose research has contributed to a clear impact on a global scale. This accomplishment reflects the high quality of the university's scientific research output.
A diverse set of criteria was utilized to assess the impact of researchers over the course of their careers and in a single year. These criteria include global scientific publications, the H-index, the impact factor, total citations (including self-citations), co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, etc. Stanford University relied on the Scopus database, which is affiliated with the global publisher Elsevier, to extract these indicators. Researchers were classified into 22 scientific fields and 174 subfields.
Among these scientists, 4 faculty members were selected for their long-term performance and career-long research impact:
