A team consisting of scientists from the United States of America and the Netherlands identified the most influential scientists of the world based on variables such as number of scientific papers, number of citations, number of authors, authorship position, and citation to own paper and using a composite indicator scientific impact index.
The study classifying 100,000 top scientists of the world into 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields was carried out under the coordination of Stanford University and published in the scientific journal named Plos Biology. The study included about 7 million researchers who have published at least five papers between 1996-2017 and listed 100,000 scientists.
Durmuş Ali Demir, a Faculty Member at the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences of Sabancı University, has been included in The List of The Most Influential Scientists of The World, which included 196 scientists from Turkey.
