HKBU scholar named among World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds

浸大學者獲列入湯森路透「全球最具影響力科學家」

Thomson Reuters published on 14 January its study of the “World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds: 2015”, a citation analysis identifying scientists who have made the most significant global impact in their respective fields of study determined by their fellow researchers. In other words, the selected scientists’ published works were most frequently cited by their peers. Professor Raymond Wong, Chair Professor and Head of the Department of Chemistry, and Elizabeth Law Endowed Chair of Advanced Materials of HKBU, was named one of the world’s top 130 researchers in materials science, becoming one of only two scholars in this field who come from universities in Hong Kong.
 
Professor Wong said, “It is my great honour to be acknowledged as one of the world’s most influential scientific researchers in my specialty. The list reflects positive assessment of our research at HKBU by peers around the world who recognise our work to be of particular significance.”
 
The longer-range study, widely known as the Highly Cited Researchers, included an 11-year assessment of research paper citations to determine the leaders within 21 broad fields of science and the social sciences. The fields included clinical medicine, biology & biochemistry, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, materials science, physics, immunology, computer science, mathematics, microbiology, space science, economics & business. The study recognised around 3,000 scientists who published the greatest number of articles ranking among the top one percent by citations received in their respective fields in each paper’s year of publication. The analysis covered over 120,000 papers indexed between 2003 and 2013 for each specialty.
 
Professor Wong’s research focuses on the development of sustainable energy sources and improvement in light/electrical energy conversion technologies.

湯森路透於1月14日公布「2015年度全球最具影響力科學家報告」。此報告是根據科學家在其專屬領域的論文獲最高引用次數而篩選出該領域最具全球影響力的科學家。浸大化學系系主任及講座教授、羅嘉穗先進材料研究講座教授黃維揚教授,獲該報告選為材料科學領域中全球首130名科學家,材料科學領域僅有兩位來自本港大學的學者。
 
黃維揚教授說﹕「我十分榮幸在我的專屬領域中,獲列入全球最具影響力的學者之一,報告反映了國際學者認同及正面評價浸大的研究工作。」
 
報告中一項長期的研究(常稱「廣獲徵引的科學家名錄」)分析了11年間在21個科學及社會科學研究領域的文獻獲引用的資料。研究領域包括臨床醫學、生物與生物化學、化學、工程、地質科學、材料科學、物理、免疫學、計算機科學、數學、微生物學、太空科學、經濟與商業等。此研究追蹤了3,000位於其研究領域及於每年度出版的論文獲最多引用的首1%科學家,並根據他們在2003至2013年於各領域發表的超過120,000篇論文中作出分析。
 
黃教授的研究項目包括研發可持續能源,以及致力改善光電能源轉換技術。
