Özyeğin University Faculty Members Listed Among the World's Most Influential Scientists

Our six faculty members have been named among the world’s most influential scientists.  The list is compiled based on the performance evaluation of approximately 7 million scientists across the world, using metrics such as number of articles, number of citations, and order of authors.

The study conducted by Ioannidis, Boyack and Baas (2020) using SCOPUS data ranked scientists in 22 disciplines and 176 sub-disciplines based on their career-long performance.  The ranking used a special index to provide a list of the world’s top 100,000 most-cited scientists across all scientific fields as well as scientists who are in the top 2% of their sub-disciplines.

Our Faculty of Business member Prof. Dr. Bülent Mengüç ranked 132nd in the list which includes only 222 scientists in the sub-discipline of marketing world-wide, while our Faculty of Engineering member Prof. Dr. Murat Uysal ranked 329th among 3,417 scientists in the sub-discipline of computer networks and communication world-wide.
