The latest edition of the ranking of researchers with the greatest scientific impact in the world, carried out by Stanford University, places a total of 28 researchers from the University of Alicante at the top of the world's research in three areas: Science, Technology and Social Sciences.
The analysis by researchers Loannidis (Stanford University), Baas (Elsevier B.V.), Klavans and Boyack (SciTechStrategies Inc.) performs two rankings. On the one hand, the list of scientists according to the impact of their citations throughout their research career and on the other, a list limited to the year 2019. In the first one, 28 scientists from the University of Alicante appear, while in the second one there are 27.
The list has taken into account standardised information on parameters related to the number of times an article is taken as a reference and cited by another researcher, the number of authors who sign each article or the position of the signatories. The researchers have been distributed across 22 different scientific fields, and the top 2% in each of their main disciplines are included, representing institutions from all over the world.
The list of researchers from the University of Alicante that appear among the top 2% of the most cited in the world covers several areas of knowledge and is made up of the following scientists: Rodríguez-Reinoso, Francisco; Carmen Nájera; Miguel Yus; Fernando Maestre; Clavilier, J.; Linares-Solano, Ángel; Harry Marsch; Agustín Bueno López; Rafael Font; Molina-Azorin, José F. ; Juan José Tarí; Francisco Alonso; Diego Cazorla; J.M Feliu; Negueruela I.; Javier García; Diego J. Ramón; José A. Caballero; Enrique Herrero; David Piñero; Antonio Marcilla; Juan A. Conesa; Augusto Beléndez; José Solla Gullón; Emilia Morallón; Antonio Rodes; González-García, J.; Víctor Climent.
Stanford University, in California, is considered in all the rankings as one of the ten best universities in existence and they are responsible for preparing this study that analyses almost seven million active scientists from all over the world. In order to carry out the work, the researchers used Scopus, the largest database of scientific papers published in scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.
