Editorial board members feature in a list of the World’s top 2% of scientists

Published 24 October, 2022

We are very proud to announce that 24 members of the editorial board of Sports Medicine and Health Science (SMHS) have been included in a latest list of top 2% of leading scientists around the world. The list was drawn up by a team of experts at Stanford University in the US, under the guidance of one of the university’s eminent professors, John Ioannidis. It features 200,409 names of scientists from 22 different subject areas whose publications are most often cited by other authors. The list provides standardised information on their citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator.

The list is freely available on Mendeley. Below, in no particular order, are the names of the 24 SMHS editorial board members who feature in the list. We would like to take this opportunity to offer them our sincere congratulations.
