Prof. Zdeněk P. Bažant Ranked No. 1 in Civil Engineering

Prof. Zdeněk P. Bažant is ranked No. 1 in Civil Engineering, and No. 2 in engineering of all fields (after John Hutchinson). He is among top 0.0056% of all six million scientists worldwide.

This data was gathered in a Stanford University worldwide citation survey, published in PLoS. Scopus citation data for 6 million scientists in 22 major fields and 176 sub-fields were analyzed. The survey, deposited in Mendeley Data, covered citations during the period 1996–2017. 100,000 scientists were sorted and ranked by a composite point index. The index excludes self-citations. It is filtered by six different weights, taking into account the first, last or corresponding author, the number of authors per paper (e.g., 1, 3, 20), reciprocal citations, etc. Both living and deceased authors cited during that period are covered.
