Scientists are classified into 22 distinct scientific fields and 174 subfields using the established Sci-Metrics classification system. Field- and subfield-specific rankings are also provided for scientists who have authored at least five papers. Data throughout their careers are updated through the end of 2022, and data for the most recent year reflects the number of citations received in calendar year 2022.
The selection process is based on two criteria: Either being among the top 100,000 scientists according to C-score or having a percentile rank of two percent or higher within a specific sub-field. This current version (version 6) is based on information from Scopus as of 1 October 2023, and is updated to the end of the citation year 2022. All calculations were performed using author profiles from Scopus available until 1 October 2023.
