12 researchers from Linnaeus University on Stanford University's ranking list of the world's leading researchers

When researchers at Stanford University rank 2%, or 160,000 of the top researchers in the world, twelve of them are at Linnaeus University.

The ranking list is based on published articles, the impact factor of the publications and the number of citations. Based on this, the Stanford researchers have produced an index and ranked the researchers in each research area.

Andrei Khrennikov, professor at the Department of Mathematics, has received the highest ranking score of the twelve LNU researchers.

His 586 articles during the years 1982-2020 resulted in an index of 4.09. With that, he is ranked number 31 out of 48,324 in his field.

Michael Grätzel (Nanoscience & Nanotechnology) at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne received the highest ranking in total. His 1567 articles between 1971 and 2020 generated an index score of 5.65.

The results are classified in 22 scientific areas and 176 subfields in the report published in PLoS Biology in October 2020.
