The list of the world’s most influential scientists, prepared annually through the collaboration of Stanford University and the Netherlands-based scientific publishing company Elsevier, was published in the two categories of “Annual Impact” and “Career-Long Impact”. The rankings were made based on objective criteria such as number of high-quality publications, number of citations, number of patents, h-index and hm-index of academics.

There were 60 academics on the "Annual Impact" list and 66 academics on the "Career Long Impact" list from Istanbul Technical University.

Four of our faculty members from the Department of Solid Earth Sciences of the Eurasian Institute of Earth Sciences, Prof. Dr. Aral Okay, Prof. Dr. Celâl Şengör, Prof. Dr. Hans Jensen Thybo and Prof. Dr. Tolga Görüm took part in the lists.
