28 Most Published Scholars In Nigeria by futureenergy: 1:33am On Jan 13
By Mohammed Dahiru Aminu

On Monday November 20, 2017, I collected a list of the most published scholars in Nigeria, including their total publications; total citations from their publications and number of documents that cite their works; the period within which the publications were made; and their h-indexes.

The decision to collect the list was influenced by the lived realities of being a scholar and researcher in Nigeria, where so many reasons exist to put you at a disadvantaged position so that you are unable to compete favorably with other scholars, within your discipline, from around the world. But despite these disadvantages, some scholars in Nigeria still defy the odds by refusing to be weighed down by the extreme improbability of researching and publishing success, and have thus published in some of the most notable academic journals around the world. These scholars deserve to be recognized and commended for their efforts.

To collect data presented in this piece, I used Scopus—the world’s largest abstract and citation database for peer reviewed literature. As a first step, I sourced all documents affiliated to Nigeria. The total documents sourced were 94,771 produced from 163 affiliations over the period 1910 to present. The documents surveyed cut across almost all subject areas: as medicine; agricultural and biological sciences; biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology; social sciences; environmental science; engineering; pharmacology, toxicology and pharmaceutics; immunology and microbiology; earth and planetary sciences; chemistry; materials science; computer science; physics and astronomy; mathematics; arts and humanities; energy; veterinary medicine; chemical engineering; nursing; economics, econometrics and finance; business, management and accounting; multidisciplinary; psychology; neuroscience; health professions; decision sciences; dentistry and undefined subjects. The document types comprised original articles; conference papers; reviews; book chapters; letters; articles in press; notes; editorials; short surveys; erratum; books; abstract reports; conference reviews; reports and retracted documents.

Thus, below, is a list of the most published scholars in Nigeria.

1. Oyewusi Gureje, of the Department of Psychiatry, University of Ibadan is the most published scholar in Nigeria. He has published in the best journals in the field of medicine. He currently has 338 publications and 18038 total citations by 14619 documents. His publication range is 1986 to present, and his h-index is 59.

2. Ganiyu Oboh, of the Department of Biochemistry, Federal University of Technology, Akure, has 220 publications and 2534 total citations by 1696 documents. His publication range is 2001 to present, and his h-index is 25.

3. Adesola O. Ogunniyi, of the Department of Medicine, University College Hospital, Ibadan, has 198 publications and 5015 total citations by 3874 documents. His publication range is 1987 to present, and his h-index is 32.
