Six scientists from Vietnam National University-Hanoi (VNU-HN), the Hanoi University of Public Health, and the Hanoi Medical University, along with seven other Vietnamese working in the country have been listed among the world's best scientists by Research.com, a reputable academic ranking website.

The group of six consists of Nguyen Dinh Duc, Le Hoang Son, Pham Hung Viet, Tu Binh Minh, Hoang Van Minh, and Tran Xuan Bach. Professor Nguyen Dinh Duc was named in the engineering and technology category. Professors Viet and Minh made it to the environmental science category while Le Hoang Son entered the category of computer science. Professor Hoang Van Minh of the Hanoi University of Public Health is the first scientist in the field of social sciences and humanities, while Tran Xuan Bach of the Hanoi Medical University is the only Vietnamese named in the medical category.

Prof. Nguyen Dinh Duc is one of Vietnam's leading scientists in the field of mechanics and composite materials. He has published more than 300 scientific works, including 200 articles in prestigious international journals. He has been ranked among the 100,000 most influential scientists in the world for four consecutive years from 2019 to 2022.

Dr. Le Hoang Son is known as a talented young scientist with highly applied research works in the field of computer science. Among them, there are many research projects applied in leading countries in science and technology, including the US, Italy, and Germany. Son has published more than 180 papers and articles in foreign journals. He is also listed in the top 10,000 excellent scientists in the world for four straight years (from 2019 to 2022), and is given the "Rising Star" badge - an excellent scientific star in the world in 2022.

They are Nguyen Xuan Hung and Phung Van Phuc of Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology; Nguyen Thoi Trung of Van Lang University; Thai Hoang Chien of Ton Duc Thang University; and Bui Quoc Tinh of Tokyo Institute of Technology.

The ranking is based on the D-index (Discipline H-index), which includes papers and citations for a given discipline. It was compiled by analyzing data from 166,880 scientists in 24 fields on the Microsoft Academic Graph.

The Vietnamese scientists were ranked in seven fields, including computer science, engineering and technology, environmental science, materials science, mechanical and aerospace engineering, medicine, and social sciences and humanities.

Last year, Research.com also named ten Vietnamese scientists in its list of the world's top scientists.

Before that, ten Vietnamese were named in the list of the world's top 10,000 scientists published by the US-based PLOS Biology Journal last October, including Prof. Nguyen Dinh Duc and Dr. Le Hoang Son from the VNU-HN.
