  • Luís Caires, Luís Moniz Pereira and Luís Alexandre researchers at NOVA Laboratory for Computer Science and Informatics (NOVA LINCS), were ranked among the top 2% of the world’s most highly-cited scientists, in their respective fields, according to a new study published by Stanford University (USA).

    Prof. John Ioannidis and his team from Stanford University, used Scopus to created a publicly available database of 100,000 top-scientists that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator.

    In this ranking, scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. Field- and subfield-specific percentiles are also provided for all scientists who have published at least 5 papers.The list includes 384 Portuguese researchers, of which 30 are from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa.
