With a total of 55 million records, Scopus delivers a comprehensive overview of research in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and the arts and humanities. Inevitably, some of the authors indexed in Scopus are bound to be more popular or have more impact than others.
Certain authors, however, are true celebrities of worldwide fame (achieved, incidentally, not merely on scientific merits). We'd like to introduce you to some of them.
Brian May: Rocking the astrophysics
Apart from being the lead guitarist of celebrated rock group Queen, English musician Brian May also studied physics and mathematics at Imperial College in London. He started his PhD on the motion of interplanetary dust particles in 1970 which, mainly due to musical commitments, he was finally able to complete in September 2007. Asteroid 52665 Brianmay is named in his honour.
