The third issue of the World's Top 2% Scientists 2021 List was published by the team of Professor John P.A.Ioannidis at Stanford University and Mendeley Data of Elsevier. Based on the Scopus database, the team selected the top 2% of scientists from nearly 7 million scientists in the world by scoring them on six key factors. The ranking was divided into 22 disciplines and 176 sub-disciplines, and the database covered nearly 160,000 eminent scientists in each discipline. The ranking was released in two categories: Career-long Impact Ranking and Single Year Impact Ranking, which corresponded to the comprehensive data from 1960 - 2020 and 2020 respectively. 

The list is not intended to rank scholars, but rather to explore a multi-dimensional way to show the state of scientific research from the perspective of scientists and to provide a measure of scientists' long-term performance in scientific research, in the hope of reflecting their influence in a more objective and realistic way. Inclusion in the list means that the scholar has a high global influence in his or her research field.
