University President’s list of distinguished researchers is issued through four different tracks: where the first track is highlighting the faculty members or researchers with the highest publications according to the college, the second track represents the faculty members or researchers with the highest publications according to the track, and the third track focuses on the top 10 published researchers at the university, and for the fourth track, which represents the top 10 most cited researchers in the last six years at the university.
