A well-known database created by Stanford University researchers was recently updated for the sixth time and lists 20 D'Amore-McKim School of Business faculty members among the world's most cited researchers. Looking at several indicators, the team analyzed data from 1996 through 2022, covering more than 7 million scientists in 22 major fields.
“Citations are the gold standard for measuring impact within the scientific community,” says Senior Associate Dean for Faculty and Research Olubunmi (Bunmi) Faleye. “It's gratifying, though not surprising, that our faculty are conducting influential studies that so many other scholars find relevant to their own research programs.”
