  • This is not the complete list as many names are missing including my name at serial number 104023 in table S7. Please correct this list

  • This is not a complete list. Names of several Pakistanis mentioned in Stanford University released list are missing. Please include all. Also include the name at serial number 114693

  • Plz recheck the list. Some other scientists are also missing. Dr khuram shahzad ahmad from fatima jinnah women university name is missing as well.

  • The list prepared by the Stanford’s professor is not scientifically rigorous. Just number of citations is no hallmark of research distinction when there’s no substantial contribution in existence. We produce more than twelve thousand research papers, with some even over 100 a year, yet not a single acclaimed theory even to date, what to talk of scientific breakthrough. Look at the posts of these so-called “researchers” how they show craving for fame.

  • I am very much glad for 81 persons for scientific research mind & approach, name of Pakistan into World.
    Best wishes for them to improve more for design our industrial system for more export as in China etc.
