The US-based Stanford University has recently released a list that represents the top 2 percent of the most-cited scientists in various disciplines. A publicly available database of 100,000 top-scientists across multiple fields that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator was used. The exhaustive list has 1,59,683 persons included in my name with a ranking of 66823 worldwide. Separate data are shown for career-long and single year impact. Metrics with and without self-citations and ratio of citations to citing papers are given. Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields, my name was associated with three main subfields: Building & Construction, Energy, Built Environment and Design. Field- and subfield-specific percentiles are also provided for all scientists who have published at least 5 papers. Career-long data are updated to end-of-2019.
The dataset and code provides an update to previously released (version 1) data under https://doi.org/10.17632/btchxktzyw.1; The version 2 dataset is based on the May 06, 2020 snapshot from Scopus and is updated to citation year 2019. In addition to the time period and datacut update, it provides a long list of authors: it also includes the top 2% for every subfield.

I was surprised and overwhelmed with joy when Mohamed Hamdy, my friend, informed me about being rated number 66823 on the list of 100,000 top scientists across all fields that was just published by colleagues from Stanford University. The new standardized citation method they applied to screen over seven million scientists worldwide appears to be fair and well-balanced. I am grateful to all of you who were part of this success. Thank you Hamdy. Field: Building & Construction, Energy, Built Environment and Design.
