08 Nov, 2022
img Three scholars from the HKBU School of Business have recently been listed among the world’s top 2% of the most-cited scientists in respective disciplines. They are among the 44 researchers from HKBU recognised on the list this year, indicating HKBU’s growing research strength and impact.

The list of the database of top-cited scientists is published by Stanford University. Prof. Christy Cheung, Professor of the Department of Finance and Decision Sciences, and Prof. Xu Huang, Associate Dean (Research and Impact) and Chair Professor of the Department of Management, are listed in Information & Communication Technologies and Economics & Business fields, respectively, for two consecutive years. Dr. Ludwig Man Kit Chang, Assistant Professor of the Department of Finance and Decision Sciences, and Dr. Rongjun Yu, Associate Professor of the Department of Management, also made the list in Information & Communication Technologies and Clinical Medicine fields, respectively.

The ranking is based on the “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators”, compiled and announced annually by a group of researchers at Stanford University, USA.  Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. The rankings are calculated based on standardized information of citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator.
