Elsevier B.V is an academic publishing company that publishes medical and scientific literature. It is based in Stanford University, United States of America.

The management of UNILORIN used their bulletin to announce their academic feat and global recognition.

Speaking on behalf of the duo, Mr Oyewumi, the Dean of Faculty of Physical Sciences said researchers’ ranking had become a global tool for evaluating intellectualism, academic prowess, research excellence and impact in the 21st century.

“While many ranking bodies are questionable and generally unacceptable, an emerging reputable and distinguished ranking body has named two UNILORIN dons, among the world’s top two scientists,’’ he noted.

Mr Oyewumi added that 180,000 scientists were selected from the more than eight million active scientists worldwide in 22 major scientific fields and 176 subfields.

“The list is led by Prof. John Loannidis of Stanford University with the use of verifiable data drawn from the SCOPUS database.

“The method adopted for the ranking involved the use of a complex algorithm based on ranking parameters such as SCOPUS documents (1960-2020).

“It also includes citations (including distinct citing papers), and co-authorship (including first authorship), among others,’’ he said.

The dean explained that the long list contained names of few Nigerian scientists drawn primarily from universities and research institutes globally.

He described the inclusion of himself and Prof. Yakubu who is the immediate past Director of UNILORIN Central Research Laboratories, in the list as a reflection of the valuable impact of the institution’s researchers on the global research platform.
