54 HKBU scholars are ranked as the world’s top 2% most-cited scientists by Stanford University in the latest results. The growing presence of HKBU scholars on this internationally recognised list is a strong testament to the University's expanding research strength and impact. 
The ranking is based on the “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators”, compiled and announced annually by Professor John P.A. Ioannidis and his team of notable researchers from Stanford University. Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 174 sub-fields. The rankings are calculated based on standardised information of citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator.


Congratulations to our top-notch researchers!
