Recently, Elsevier released the 2015 list of the highly cited scholars in China, in which 1744 Chinese researchers were named as highly cited scholars in China of the year 2015. Among them, nine researchers are the current faculty members of the College of Engineering, Peking University.

The nine listed highly cited College of Engineering researchers are Prof. Xun Huang in the field of aerospace engineering, Prof. Xinrong Zhang in the field of Energy, Prof. Xiaowei Zhan in the field of Materials Science, Prof. Moubin Liu in the field of Computational Mechanics, Prof. Guangming Xie and Prof. Zhisheng Duan in the field of Control and System Engineering, Prof. Shiyi Chen, Shuxiang Dong and Qian Wang in the field of Physics.

Over the years, China has been increasing its influence and place in the international scientific research world. The 2015 list was produced based on the objective data provided by the Elsevier database “Scopus”, the world’s largest database of literature abstract and citation, which includes over 20 thousand peer-reviewed journals.

With the database, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy made a systematic analysis of the international impact by each researcher whose primary affiliation is in China. The methodology considered the overall citation times of all the publications of a researcher, only counting the first authors and the corresponding authors, and ranked them in 42 sorted disciplines.
