UAE University scholars ranked in top 2% of world scientists

The United Arab Emirates University's (UAEU) researchers have been ranked in the top two per cent of world scientists by Stanford University.

The list identifies the top scholars in their speciality areas and whose publications are most frequently cited by other authors around the globe.

Stanford University’s analysis was conducted using Elsevier’s Scopus abstract and citation database.

Scopus is used by the academic community, governments, funding agencies, and industry research and development organisations to find relevant and authoritative peer-reviewed research.

It helps identify experts and provides reliable data, metrics, and analysis of scholarly research.

Fourteen researchers from the ‎College of Medicine and Health Sciences, including one ‎medical laboratory specialist, were on the list.

‎The remaining 31 researchers, specialising in civil engineering, food science, ‎microbiology, renewable energy, material science, ‎economics and business administration, astronomy and ‎space sciences, and applied mathematics, received very ‎high citations during 2020.

Zaki Nusseibeh, Cultural Adviser to the UAE President said, "Our UAEU scientists’ research will enable these future generations to seek global horizons through a responsible international role. This is how we will achieve sustainable ecological, economic, and social prosperity, and the wellbeing and peaceful coexistence of all nations."
