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:
