In 2019, researchers from Stanford University (Ioannidis et al. 2019) published a ranking of the world's most-cited scholars. This was highly acclaimed for its methodology and scope because it combined various citation indicators calculated based on data from Scopus (Elsevier).

In the most recent edition, the freely accessible, comprehensive dataset of the Stanford study shows which scholars are among the top 2% of each individual scientific field in terms of citations for 22 disciplines with 174 subfields. The study takes into account the fact that citation densities can vary considerably between individual disciplines. 

IntCDC Director Achim Menges is once again ranked as the world's second most cited researcher in architecture, as he was in the 2022 edition. Congratulations on this continued success, which demonstrates the global visibility of research in architecture and the built environment at the University of Stuttgart.
