Editorial Sifeng Liu listed in the world’s top 2% scientists A team of investigators from the Stanford University, SciTech Strategies and Elsevier B.V. has released a report of the top 2% scientists globally in various fields, and over 5,000 scientists with Chinese affiliations made it to the list (Ioannidis et al., 2020). The list also recognized the top gurus of fuzzy set theory and grey system theory (Science Insight, 2020). The list of top scientists was created by the experts on the basis of standardized citation indicators like information on citations, h-index, co-authorship and a composite indicator. The ranking is based on a c-score (composite indicator for career-long impact), an indicator introduced by Professor Ioannidis and colleagues. All of these scientists were classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields in the report, which was prepared by John Ioannidis (Stanford University), Kevin W. Boyack (SciTech Strategies, Inc.) and Jeroen Baas (Elsevier B.V.). The database entitled “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators” has been published in PLOS Biology journal on October 16 (Ioannidis et al.,2020). Elsevier’s Scopus data were used for analyses with data freeze as of 6 May 2020. They have created a database of over 100,000 top http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Grey Systems: Theory and Application Emerald Publishing
