científicos más influyentes del mundo

How can you evaluate the quality of a researcher’s work? One of the criteria that is most taken into account for this is to evaluate the number of times that other researchers cite them in their articles. Based on this criteria, Stanford University, in the U.S., this last 19th of October published the “World Ranking of Top 2% Scientists”. This list identifies the most influential researchers in the world, whose works have been most cited during their scientific career evaluated between 1996 and 2020 and also during the last year.

At the time of writing it is estimated that there are 6.8 million active researchers in total and in this list more than 100,000 are recognised to be the most influential. Among them, 18 professionals that work at barnaclínic+. As well as that, there are another 26 researchers that participate with Hospital Clínic IDIBAPS.

Considered to be the most prestigious at a global level, this ranking has been created by a group of experts made up of John Loannidis (Stanford University), Jeroen Baas (Elsevier B.V.) and Kevin W. Boyack (SciTech Strategies). The list is based on the information about publications in Scopus and provides standardised information on citations, h-index, hm-index adjusted for co-author, citations in articles in different authorship positions and an indicator composed, among them, of the different researchers. The database takes into account 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields.
