212 scientists from FAU among the top two percent of most frequently cited researchers worldwide

According to a recent study, more than 200 researchers at FAU belong to the top two percent of the most frequently cited academics worldwide. The list was published by a team of researchers from Stanford University after evaluating the Scopus database, the largest database of abstracts and citations for peer-reviewed literature from the Elsevier publishing house.

In October 2023, this overview included approximately 210,000 researchers in the most frequently cited two percent. In Germany, a total of just over 10,000 scientists are listed, including 212 from FAU. Among them are scientists from FOR2886: Prof. Dr. Martin Herrmann (project leader during the 1st funding period), Prof. Dr. Falk Nimmerjahn, Prof. Dr. med. Veit Rothhammer, Prof. Dr. med. Georg Schett and Prof. Dr. Mario Zaiss. Prof. Dr. med. Georg Schett even belongs to the TOP50 worldwide in his field (Arthritis&Rheumatology).
