Three scientists From Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi have featured in the world ranking of top 2% scientists in India

New Delhi: Three scientists Prof. GPS Raghava, Prof. Ranjan Bose and Dr. Angshul Majumdar has been featured in the list of top 2% scientist databases. The subject-wise analysis has been conducted by a team of scientists at Stanford University. Stanford University scientists have created this database of over 100,000 top scientists of the world on the basis of standardized citation indicators such as information on citations, H-index, co-authorship, and a composite indicator. All of these scientists were classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. For analysis of the citations and the composite indicators, SCOPUS data provided by Elsevier was used with data freeze as on May 6, 2020. The study can be found here
