According to the report of Elsevier highlighted by its Customer Consultant – Africa, Mr Shalan Khalid, Landmark University scaled their expectations of a university of its age. He said that Landmark University has crossed the threshold of 2000 publications on Scopus which signposted the University’s continuous drive towards improving on its previous achievements of crossing the threshold of 1000 in 2020. The report also ranked Landmark University as the Youngest University in Top 10 Nigerian Institutions in research productivity, having the most productive researchers, the 2nd Most Cited researchers and the Top 5 cited papers.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charity Aremu in her remarks expressed joy over the reality of Elsevier’s celebration of the University and identifying with its global success in the THE Impact Rankings. She noted that the gesture was historic in the annals of the University as it did not only celebrate the University but also the Faculty and Staff who have contributed to the feat. Professor Aremu further signposted the celebration as a call to do more. “This is a moment of self-appraisal, ask yourself what has been my contributions towards the success and how do I improve on that. We must do our bit and be sure that we are working in line with the University’s vision”, she added. The Vice-Chancellor further enjoined Faculty and Staff who are yet to key into research and publication to do so in order to be part of the train. In her words, Landmark has only become a world-class institution and started working towards becoming the leading world-class University as stated in its vision.
