Published in 2019, the Standardized citation metrics author database annotated for scientific field compiles information of the 100.000 most-cited scientists. It is the only large-scale database that systematically ranks all the most-cited scientists in each and every scientific field to a sufficient ranking depth. The database exploits various standardized metrics and indicators, such as the number of citations in relation to field of study, from 1996 until 2017, corrected for the annual data of 2018. It is based on Scopus citation data spanning over 22 years, providing a measure of long-term performance, and also reflecting career-long impact on academia. Therefore, the database is representative, fraud reduced (e.g., extensive self-citation or citation-clusters) and detached from academic career length.
