13 INESC TEC researchers among the world’s best in four scientific areas

There are 13 INESC TEC researchers among the most influential worldwide. The ranking, published in early October by Stanford University, includes the top 2% of scientists worldwide. The most quoted INESC TEC researchers are divided into four scientific areas: Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing (two), Energy (five), Optoelectronics and Photonics (five) and Computer Hardware and Architecture (one).

The ranking was published by Stanford, acknowledging career-long impact and single-year impact (2022).

Concerning the first, there are 11 INESC TEC researchers who are part of this ranking: João Gama, João Peças Lopes, Vladimiro Miranda, Orlando Frazão, Manuel Matos, Ricardo Bessa, Jaime Cardoso, Gaspar Rego, João Cardoso, Mohammad Javadi, and José Luís Santos. As to the 2022 impact, the list includes 10 researchers (some of them included in the career-long ranking): João Gama, Mohammad Javadi, João Peças Lopes, Ricardo Bessa, Vladimiro Miranda, Jaime Cardoso, Manuel Matos, Orlando Frazão, Luís Coelho e Pedro Jorge.

This ranking is based on the c-score indicator, which focuses on the impact of citations and not on productivity, i.e., it does not consider the number of publications; it also features information on co-authorship and author positions (single author, first, last author). The authors are classified into 22 scientific domains and 174 subdomains, according to the Science-Metrix standard classification. The selection is based on the top 100.000 scientists by c-score (with and without self-quotes) or a percentage rank of 2% or higher in the subfield.

The table below shows the results achieved by the 11 researchers regarding the number of papers, h-index, position they fill in the career-long ranking, and the respective scientific areas.

This public database of the most quoted scientists provides standardised information on citations, h-index, hm-index adjusted for co-authorship, citations of papers regarding different authorship, and a composite indicator (c-score), to address the citation metrics that are widely misused in a series of rankings – as explained by author John P. A. Ioannidis, in the Elsevier Data Repository.
