A total of nine researchers from the CAFE project appear on the updated version for the 2021 list elaborated by experts from the University of Stanford, based on standardized information on citation metrics and other factors that measure the impact of a researcher’s work.
The Stanford University (USA) has recently released an update of the list that ranks the top two percent of the world’s most-cited scientists during 2020, including 9 team members from the CAFE project consortium, and the top two percent of the world’s most-cited scientists for career-long citations.
The prestigious single-year impact list includes Cristina Masoller, from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Álvaro Corral, from the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM), Florian Pappenberger, from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), Pascal Yiou, from the Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives, Jörg Matschullat, from the Technische Universitaet Bergakademie in Freiberg, Hervé Douville, from Météo-France, Holger Kantz, from the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, Jürgen Kurths, from the Potsdam Institut fuer Klimafolgenforschung and Reik Donner, from the Potsdam Institut fuer Klimafolgenforschung
About the study
The list, created by Professor John P. A. Ioannidis (an expert in data science) from Stanford University and his research team, contains a publicly available database that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator. It is based on the bibliometric data included in the Scopus database, and comprises more than 100,000 researchers from 144 countries, out of 8 million scientists considered to be active worldwide (according to UNESCO data), classified in 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields.
Additionally, the study also includes a similar list compiling data for researcher’s entire careers, considering articles published between 1960 and 2019.
