SSH Professors among the top 2% of the highly-cited scientists of the world
According to a recent study led by Dr. Loannidis from Stanford University, eight of the currently NU affiliated researchers were among the top two percent of scientists of their main sub-field discipline. Researchers were classified into 176 sub-fields.
Among the 8 distinguished NU faculty, 3 belong to the SSH physics department: Anton Desyatnikov (Optics), Konstantinos Valagiannopoulos (Networking & Telecommunications), Jean-Jacques Zondy (Optics)
It is a global ranking of the top 2% faculty whose research (across ALL scientific disciplines) are the most impactful over their career. This ranking made by Stanford University, and based on the Scopus database, focuses mostly on a standardized citation indicators rather than the number of publications, and was published in October in PLOS Biology.
“Citation metrics are widely used and misused. We have created a publicly available database of 100,000 top-scientists that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator. Separate data are shown for career-long and single year impact. Metrics with and without self-citations and ratio of citations to citing papers are given”, – states the description to the public list.
