Stanford University has published a list of the world's top scientists based on the following six indicators.

1. Total citation
2. H-index
3. Coauthorship-adjusted H-index
4. Total citation to single autored papers
5. Total citation to single+first authored papers
6. Total citation to single+first+last authored papers

In the exhaustive list of 1,59,683 persons, with a majority of them being from IITs and IISc and other top institutes, representing fields like physics, material sciences, chemical engineering, plant biology, energy and others.

There is no large scale database that systematically ranks all the most-cited scientists in each and every field to a sufficient ranking depth. There are some like Google Scholar that allow scientists to create their profiles and share them in public. This large database created by experts at Stanford University led by Dr John Ioannidis is also based on data from Scopus that ranks journals and gives a citation index.

This database includes the top 2 percent of scientists of the world from different fields on the basis of standardized citation indications. These include information on the number of citations, H -Index, co-authorship and a composite indicator. The results were published in PloS Biology recently and they have been classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields in the report
