This world ranking of scientists was led by Stanford University, and focuses on the development of a composite indicator (c-score) for citation evaluation. The c-score is the sum of the standardized values of six log-transformed indicators, which are (1) total number of citations, (2) h-index, (3) Schreiber coauthorship-adjusted hm index, (4) number of citations to papers as a single author, (5) number of citations to papers as single or first author, and (6) number of citations to papers as single, first, or last author. The formula of the c-score can be found under Table 1 in the paper published in 2019.
