Editorial Board Members from Biomimetics Featured among the World’s Top 2% Scientists in 2023

Scientists at Stanford University have recently published an update of the list of the top 2% most widely cited scientists—the World’s Top 2% Scientists.

The time node of the statistical data of this list is from 1960 to 2023, and it is divided into two lists: “Lifetime Scientific Influence Ranking” and “2023 Annual Scientific Influence Ranking”. The “Lifetime Scientific Influence Ranking” counts the comprehensive influence performance of scientists during their careers, and the “2023 Annual Influence Ranking” focuses on highlighting the academic influence of scientists in the previous year. This ranking, considered the most prestigious worldwide, is based on the bibliometric information contained in the Scopus database and includes more than 200,000 researchers from the more than 10 million scientists considered to be active worldwide, with 22 scientific fields and 174 subfields taken into account.

We are pleased to share that 73 Editorial Board Members from Biomimetics (ISSN: 2313-7673) were featured in World’s Top 2% Scientists list in 2023.
