5 CVC Researchers Acknowledged Among the Most Cited Globally by the Stanford University Ranking
- Five researchers from the Computer Vision Center (CVC) have been recognized in the latest update on Stanford University's global ranking, placing them among the 2% of scientists with the greatest influence.
Stanford University, in collaboration with Elsevier-Scopus, has recently updated the results of the study of the most-cited authors in the world. This global ranking considered one of the most prestigious, is based on bibliometric information collected from the Scopus database (published by Elsevier), updated to the end of the citation year 2022, and includes the top 2 % of the more than 8 million researchers considered to be active worldwide.
To compile this list, Scopus data is analysed, evaluating parameters such as the number of citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, and more. The ranking provides two lists: one reflecting researchers' citation impact throughout their entire careers and another one highlighting their citation impact in the previous year (2022). Metrics with and without self-citations, as well as the ratio of citations to citing papers, are presented. Scientists are categorized into 22 scientific fields and 174 sub-fields, following the standard Science-Metrix classification.
CVC researchers distinguish themselves within the "Information and Communication Technologies" field, particularly in the "Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing" sub-field, where they are positioned among 356.955 authors.
The featured CVC researchers in this latest update include:
Dr Joost van de Weijer. Ranked 2.784 (career-long) and 1.711 (single-year 2022) out of 365.955 authors in the AI subfield.
