On the 10th October 2022, two lists with the world’s top 2% scientists were released: one considering only year 2021 and another considering the scientists’ whole career.
The lists are available here: https://elsevier.digitalcommonsdata.com/datasets/btchxktzyw/4
(files Table_1_Authors_career_2021_pubs_since_1788_wopp_extracted_202209 and Table_1_Authors_singleyr_2021_pubs_since_1788_wopp_extracted_202209)
The career-long data were collected up to the end of 2021 and the single year 2021 data pertain to citations received during this calendar year. The selection was based on the top 100K scientists by c-score (with and without self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above in the sub-field. 195605 scientists are included in the career-long database and 200409 scientists are included in the 2021-year dataset. The current version is based on the 1st September 2022 snapshot from Scopus, updated to the end of citation year 2021. This work uses Scopus data provided by Elsevier through ICSR Lab (https://www.elsevier.com/icsr/icsrlab).
