KTUN on the “World's Most Influential Scientists” List

The "World's Most Influential Scientists" list, which was determined as a result of the study carried out on approximately 7 million researchers by a team of US and Dutch scientists under the coordination of Stanford University, and also included in the scientific journal named "Plos Biology", was published. Konya Technical University Rector Prof. Dr. Babür Özçelik achieved an important success by being included in the list.


The World's Most Influential Scientists List, created by taking into account variables such as the number of scientific articles made worldwide, the number of citations, the number of authors, the order of the authors and the self-citation rate, Konya Technical University Rector Prof. Dr. Babür Özçelik, Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences Chemical Engineering Department Professor Dr. Erol Pehlivan, Electrical and Electronics Engineering Faculty Member Prof. Dr. Salih Güneş, Environmental Engineering Department Faculty Member Prof. Dr. Mehmet Emin Argun, Computer Engineering Department Faculty Member Prof. Dr. Harun Uğuz and Associate Prof. Dr. Mustafa Servet Kıran, and Vocational School of Technical Sciences, Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, Prof. Dr. Mevlüt Uyan were among the scientists who entered the list from Turkey.


In the preparation of the list, the academic performance of 7 million scientists who have published at least five articles in their field was evaluated. Between 1996 and 2019, the world's most cited 100 thousand scientists were determined using data from the "Scopus Abstract" and "Citation Database." A total of 857 Turkish scientists were included in the list.




Konya Technical University Rector Prof. Dr. Babür Özçelik said, “Even though we are a newly established university, we are taking firm steps forward to set goals and set goals as a university with more than 50 years of experience and knowledge in the education sector, based on the Konya State Engineering and Architecture Academy, which was founded in 1970. As a faculty member, I attach great importance to being involved in science, doing research, leading the field by having a say in its own branch, and being in the process of lifelong learning and learning. I know that each of our faculty members at Konya Technical University are in this effort. The results show that our university's name appears in both projects completed and research papers published. I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate and wish continued success to our faculty members who were named to the list."
