29 Kent State Faculty Members Named in Top 2% of Scientists in Fields Worldwide

Kent State’s Top Notch Research Showcased in New Study

Twenty-nine current Kent State faculty members have been named to be in the top 2% of scientists in the world based on a recent study published by Stanford University scholars, proving why Kent State is a top-tier research university. 

Top 2 % in the World

The report, published in the PLOS Biology journal, evaluated more than six million scientists across 22 different fields and 176 subfields from 1996 until 2019. The top 2% list is made up of more than 100,000 most-cited scientists who have authored at least five scientific papers. The ranking method is based on standardized citation metrics developed by a group of scientists led by John P.A. Ioannidis, a professor at Stanford University. This top 2% were assigned a composite citation score or “c-score” based on standardized citation indicators, which include numbers of citations, a commonly used metric known as “h-index” which reflects an individual’s research output, co-authorship and a composite indicator for career-long impact.
