Nine INESC-ID researchers are among the most cited top scientists in the world
Nine INESC-ID researchers are among the most cited top scientists at the top 2% of their respective areas.
Portugal is represented in this list compiled by Stanford University with 385 scientists affiliated to several national institutions.
The rankings are based upon a researcher’s citations for both a single year (2019) and cumulative across their careers. Titled “Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators,” the list uses algorithms that quantify and systematically rank individuals into consistent scientific fields.
The scores are provided both with and without self-citations to lessen the impact of researchers employing extreme self-citations or the use of citation farms (small clusters of researchers massively citing each other’s work).
Ranked within the careerlong citation impact list are these INESC-ID researchers:
- Arlindo Oliveira – Information and Decision Support Systems (IDSS)
- Gil Marques – Green Energy and Smart Converters (GESC)
- Leonel Sousa – High Performance Computing Architectures and Systems (HPCAS)
- J. Fernando Silva – Green Energy and Smart Converters (GESC)
- Francisco Santos – Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (AIPS)
- Joaquim Jorge – Graphics and Interaction (GI)
- Luís A. F. M. Ferreira – Sustainable Power Systems (SPS)
- Victor Fernão Pires – Green Energy and Smart Converters (GESC)
- Ana Paiva – Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (AIPS)
