CBMA has two scientists among the world’s most influential of 2021
Jorge Pacheco and Ronaldo Sousa are among the world’s most influential scientists of 2021.
Stanford University has recently released an update of the list that represents the top 2 per cent of the most-cited scientists in various disciplines. This list includes 190,000 scientists, 703 of them in Portugal and 53 at the University of Minho.
The database provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator.
Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. Field- and subfield-specific percentiles are also provided for all scientists who have published at least 5 papers. Career-long data are updated to end-of-2020. The selection is based on the top 100,000 by c-score (with and without self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above.
