A group of researchers from Stanford University in California (USA) recently published a study on the scientific citation, ranking around 160,000 of the world's most cited scientists in all disciplines and listing 2% of the world's most-cited scientists. The paper is available here.
The study published two lists:
- a list of the most influential scientists for their entire scientific career and
- a list of the most influential scientists for 2019.
The list of the most influential scientists in the world for the entire scientific career includes 47 Croatian scientists, including two from FER. Professor Sven Lončarić, Ph.D., is ranked in the top 1% of scientists in the world in the field of "Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing", and associate professor Dubravko Babić, Ph.D., in the top 2% of scientists in the world in the field of "Optoelectronics and Photonics".
The list of the top 2% of the most influential scientists in the world for 2019 also includes 47 Croatian scientists, three of whom are from FER: professor Sven Lončarić, Ph.D., in the field of "Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing", associate professor Hrvoje Pandžić, Ph.D., in the field of "Energy" and professor Damir Žarko, Ph.D., in the field of "Electrical & Electronic Engineering".
The study used data from the Scopus database, which measures the impact of scientists until the end of 2019. The study, which categorises scientists into 22 fields and 176 branches, analysed citations from 1996 to 2019 and was based on a complex model that used six standardised metrics of scientific productivity.
