More than 20 Miami University faculty members are among the top 2 percent of the world’s researchers, according to a recent Stanford University study. Based on an analysis of citations, the study identified the top scholars among nearly eight million authors in 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields.
“Studies such as this one continue to confirm that Miami has a world class faculty who are committed to furthering their disciplines, acquiring new knowledge and using what they have learned to inspire the next generation of scholars,” said Miami President Gregory Crawford. “Miami has a vibrant research community filled with thought leaders and pioneers who propel science and society forward.”
Led by Stanford’s John Ioannidis, a team of scientists created a database of standardized citation metrics for both career-long and single year (2019) impact. Metrics with and without self-citations and ratio of citations to citing papers are given. The resulting analysis “ Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators ” was published in the Public Library of Science Biology.
“I am so pleased to see Miami scholars recognized as some of the most cited scientists in the world,” said Alicia Knoedler, vice president for research and innovation.”I believe it is also important that we recognize that our faculty’s impact and influence is not limited to academic journals. Publications and citations are just one dimension of Miami’s thriving research enterprise, which includes a broad and diverse community of scientists, scholars and creators whose work and influence contribute to the robust intellectual and creative environment that Miami provides to its students.”
