Stanford annually compiles two distinct lists of the most cited scientists globally. They use Scopus data provided by Elsevier, evaluating a composite score that considers various citation factors, including authorship roles (sole or collaborative). Based on this score, researchers are ranked, recognizing the top 2% globally. These scientists are categorized across 22 scientific fields and 174 sub-fields, as per the Science-Metrix classification standard. The career-long list incorporates data updated until the end of 2022, while the single-year list focuses on citations received solely in the 2022 calendar year.
