Indian scientists featured in the world ranking of top 2% scientists

In a recent study on subject-wise ranking analysis published in one of the impact journals, PLOS Biology on 16th October 2020, has featured more than 100,000 top scientists of the world on the basis of standardised citation indicators such as information on citations, H-index, co-authorship and a composite indicator. The study was conducted and the ranking database has been created by a team of authors, led by Dr John Ioannidis, from the Stanford University, USA and the Elsevier B.V., The Netherlands.. There were 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields were taken for the study. For analysis of the citations and the composite indicators, SCOPUS data provided by Elsevier was used with data freeze as on May 6, 2020.

 Dr Murugan Ramalingam, professor at Centre for Biomaterials, School of Mechanical Engineering  from Vellore Institute of Technology has been ranked among top 2% scientists in India under “Biomedical Engineering” field. His research interest includes human organ engineering using stem cells and biomaterials. He has also an Adjunct Professor at Tohoku University, Japan, Professeur des Universite at the Facultéde Chirurgie Dentaire, Université de Strasbourg, France and Visiting ASEM-DUO Professorat the University of Twente, The Netherlands.
