Which universities have the most influential scientists?

Prof Nguyen Xuan Hung from Hutech

The statistical criteria for ranking include the number of published articles (1960-2019); the number of citations (1996-2019); H index (which measures influence) after excluding self-citations; H-index after adjustments for many authors, excluding self-citations; and self-citation rate.

The authors of the publication are the Metrics group of Professor John Ioannidis and co-workers at Stanford University. The authors used the Scopus database from 1960 to 2019 and chose 100,000 out of 7 million scientists whose scientific research works have been most cited.

Both two groups of ranked scientists include Vietnamese who live and work in Vietnam, and Vietnamese who live and work overseas. There are also foreign scientists who work for universities in Vietnam.

There are 55 Vietnamese, overseas Vietnamese and foreign scientists with working addresses in Vietnam among 100,000 scientists by career achievements.

However, there are only two Vietnamese scientists in Vietnam on the list – Prof Nguyen Xuan Hung from the HCM City University of Technology (Hutech), ranked 65,925th and Prof Nguyen Dinh Duc from Vietnam National University, Hanoi, ranked 94,738th.

 

Of the 100,000 most influential scientists, there are 88 Vietnamese, overseas Vietnamese and foreign scientists with working addresses in Vietnam.

The number of scientists working in Vietnam on this year’s list is considerably higher than last year.

Among Vietnamese scientists in Vietnam, the highest rank belongs to Prof Nguyen Dinh Duc from Vietnam National University, Hanoi, the 5,798th position, followed by Prof Nguyen Xuan Hung from Hutech, the 6,996th, and Associate Prof Le Hoang Son from Vietnam National University, Hanoi, the 9,261st.

The list of 1,000 most influential scientists includes many researchers working in Vietnam, namely Nguyen Duc Khuong from Vietnam National University, Hanoi; Phan Thanh Son Nam from Hutech; Bui Dieu Tien, Pham Viet Thanh, Nguyen Thoi Trung, Nguyen Thi Kim Oanh, Thai Hoang Chien and Dinh Quang Hai from Ton Duc Thang University; Tran Phan Lam Son, Pham Thai Binh, Tran Nguyen Hai, Tran Ngoc Han, Hoang Nhat Duc from Duy Tan University; Hoang Anh Tuan from HCM City Transport University; Vo Xuan Vinh from HCM City Economics University; Nguyen Van Hieu from Phenikaa University; and Tran, Phong D from Hanoi University of Science and Technology.

However, if considering the H index ranking after excluding self-citations, the first position belongs to Prof Nguyen Xuan Hung (Hutech) with H=44, followed by Prof Nguyen Dinh Duc (Vietnam National University, Hanoi) with H=26 and Le Hoang Son from the same university with H=20.
