The evaluation criteria were the Hirsch index, the number of citations (including self-citations), the Impact Factor and the place and role in the authors’ list. The data, updated in September 2022, is part of the “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators.” Selection criteria include the top 100,000 scientists by c-score or a percentile rank of 2% or above in their respective sub-field. In 2022, 195,605 scientists were included in the career-long database, and 200,409 were included in the single recent year dataset. The c-score emphasizes impact and incorporates information on co-authorship and author positions. The database, published in an archival form, will not be changed, and researchers are advised to ensure the accuracy of their Scopus profiles for future updates. Juan Carlos’s inclusion in this list highlights his significant contributions to the field of science and his high impact and influence in research.
TOP 2% Scientists 2021 consists of two separate lists. The first assesses scientific achievements from a research career (using data from 1960 onwards), while the second only considers publications and citations from the last calendar year.
The list concerning scientific careers includes 1058 researchers from Poland – they represent 163 scientific institutions (universities and research institutes). In contrast, the previous year’s list included 1092 Poles from 165 institutions.
The TOP 2% ranking was based on the scientific output of individual researchers according to a bibliometric index. The evaluation criteria were the Hirsch index, the number of citations (including self-citations), the Impact Factor and the place and role in the authors’ list.
