Six Lingnan scholars ranked World's Top 2% Scientists

Six members of Lingnan University are in the World’s Top 2% Scientists released by Stanford University in the US.

The top 2% of the world’s most highly-cited scientists from Lingnan are Prof Joshua Mok Ka-ho, LU Vice-President and Dean of the School of Graduate Studies; Prof Dean Tjosvold, Emeritus Professor at the Department of Management; Prof Siu Oi-ling, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences; and Prof Wong Man-leung, Professor and Head of the Department of Computing and Decision Sciences. The names of the late Prof Ray Forrest and the late Prof Michael Firth are also on this prestigious list.

Stanford’s large database adopts a composite indicator based on standardised citation metrics, including the number of citations, h-index (measuring scientific research output) and co-authorship. The study analysed data from 1965 to 2019, covering about seven million scientists and scholars in 22 major fields.
