IMU Researchers Made it to the List of Top 2% Scientists in Their Main Subfield Discipline

04 Dec 2020

In a research environment, the impact of the performance of individual academics is perhaps best benchmarked by citation metrics. As its name implies, citation metrics reflects how many times a masterpiece by a researcher, be it a research paper or academic text, gets cited or referenced in other pieces of academic work such as papers, thesis, dissertations, or other texts. In an endeavour to update databases of standardized citation metrics across all scientists and scientific disciplines, a group of researchers (1) from Stanford University had conducted up-to-date analyses based on citations from the Scopus online database. Assessment was done on scientists for career-long citation impact up until the end of 2019 and for citation impact during the single calendar year 2019. In the analyses, researchers from all around the world who are within the top 2% of scientists in their main subfield discipline and that have published at least five papers have been listed. Three researchers from the International Medical University (IMU) had made it to this list. They are:

Name Division/Department School
A/Prof Chandrashekhar T Sreeramareddy Division of Community Medicine School of Medicine
Dr Dinesh Kumar Chellappan Department of Life Sciences School of Pharmacy
Dr Hira Choudhury Department of Pharmaceutical Technology School of Pharmacy

A detailed breakdown of the analyses is summarised in the table below:

Name Subfield of Discipline Rank Total Papers (1960-2019) Total Cites (1996-2019) Total Cites (2019-2019)
Sreeramareddy, Chandrashekar T Global Health 36409 89 11996 10465
Chellappan, Dinesh Kumar Drug Discovery 304632 68 474 333
Choudhury, Hira Drug Delivery and Pharmacokinetics 352106 50 375 241

Heartfelt Congratulations to A/Prof Chandrashekhar T Sreeramareddy, Dr Dinesh Kumar Chellappan, and Dr Hira Choudhury for their great achievements!
