Stanford University has recently published an excel database of 2% top-cited scientists in the world, classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields.
The massive database lists 195 605 scientists and provides citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers and a composite indicator (c-score). The c-score used by the database is based on impact (citations) rather than productivity (number of publications), and takes into account also co-authorship and author positions (single, first, last author).
The list includes eight researchers affiliated to ISOF, with 2 research directors (N. Armaroli and V. Palermo), 3 research associates (A. Del Rio, C. Chatgilialoglu, A. Credi) and 3 retired researchers (F. Barigelletti, G. Barbarella and L. Flamigni). Their work has been highly cited in the main scientific categories of Chemistry (inorganic, organic, medicinal & biomolecular) and Enabling & Strategic Technologies (nanoscience & nanotechnology).
Congratulations to our colleagues, and to all CNR researchers cited!
