Professor John Antonakis, from the Department of Organizational Behaviour, has been named again as one of the most cited career academics in the business and management field, placing him among the top 2% leading academics in the world, by the journal PLOS Biology.
The journal PLOS Biology, which specialises in biological topics, has updated its ranking on the impact of career citations for all researchers in all scientific disciplines from 1960 to 2020. The research team examined the total impact of academics, by looking at how often the work of an author is cited, relative to all other authors. The result was a list of the best academics from 174 fields. John Antonakis made it on this coveted list in the fields of "Business and Management", along with nine other Swiss-based researchers; he is also listed in the “Economics” field along with eighteen other Swiss researchers. He is the only one from the University of Lausanne in these two disciplines. The ranking places Prof. Antonakis among the top 2% of leading academics in his discipline in the world.
"I share this accolade with all the students I have supervised and all the coauthors with whom I haveworked, who made me into a better scientist", comments Prof. Antonakis.
