Several faculty members at the Texas A&M University Health Science Center (Texas A&M Health) rank in the top 2 percent of scientists worldwide, based on a study conducted by Stanford University.
“World’s Top 2% Scientists” is a publicly available database of the 100,000 most-cited authors across all scientific fields. It was compiled by researchers at Stanford University using data from Elsevier’s Scopus — a curated abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature — and considers six citation metrics. It includes two different versions: single year performance and career-long performance. The following Texas A&M Health scholars appear in the career-long list, which assesses scientists for the impact of their citations from 1996 until the end of 2020.
