(MENAFN- Gulf Times)
Nearly 30 scientists and researchers from various colleges and institutes at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) have been named among the top 2% of the most-cited scientists worldwide in various disciplines. They feature on a new global list compiled by Stanford University and leading publisher Elsevier.
The three authors of the list, Jeroen Baas, Kevin Boyack, and John P A Ioannidis said that citation metrics are often“widely used and misused”. In response, they created a publicly available database of over 100,000 top scientists that provides standardised information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator. The prestigious database has been published in the PLOS Biology journal.
Scientists listed from the College of Science and Engineering are Dr Gordon McKay, Dr Mowafa Househ, Dr Muammer Koc, Dr Ala al-Fuqaha, Dr Yusuf Bicer, Dr Rima Isaifan, Dr Muhamad Mazhar Rathore, Dr Roberto Di Pietro, Dr Tareq al-Ansari, Dr Muhammad Shahbaz, and Dr Amine Bermak.
The list also features scientists from Qatar Biomedical Research Institute comprising Dr Omar El-Agnaf, Dr Paul Thornalley, Dr Alexandra Butler, and Dr Nehad Alajez.
From Qatar Computing Research Institute the list includes Dr Jim Jansen, Mourad Ouzzani, Dr Ahmed K Elmagarmid, Dr Preslav Nakov, Dr Muhammad Imran, Dr Patrick Meier, Dr Ingmar Weber, Dr Ferda Ofli, Dr Issa Khalil, and Dr Kareem Darwish.
Those from Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute are Dr Golibjon Berdiyorov, Dr Khaled Mahmoud, Dr Kashif Rasool, and Dr Sertac Bayhan.
Dr Michael Benedik, provost at HBKU, said:“I am delighted to see how many HBKU faculty are ranked among the top 2% of the most-cited scientists worldwide. It reflects the high calibre research that is being carried out at HBKU, but more importantly the outstanding scientists and scholars that comprise the faculty of our academic colleges and scientists at the research institutes. The world is beginning to take note of the innovative and pioneering work that takes place here at HBKU and we should all be proud.'
Scientists were classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. Field- and subfield-specific percentiles were also provided for all scientists who have published at least five papers.
