According to the "Stanford List", Uwe D. Hanebeck is among the 2 per cent most widely cited scientists worldwide

Stanford University has recently published an update of the list of the top 2 percent most widely cited scientists in different disciplines, the World's Top 2 percent Scientists. This ranking, considered the most prestigious worldwide, is based on bibliometric information contained in the Scopus database and provides standardized information on citations, h-index, and more. Scopus is the largest abstract and citation data base for peer-reviewed literature by Elsevier publishing. In August 2021, the "Stanford List" contains about 190,000 researchers of the more than 8 million scientists considered to be active worldwide. The list contains 9434 active scientist in Germany.
