Almost 80 researchers from EU-CONEXUS amongst the most quoted in the world!

EU-CONEXUS is proud to count almost 80 of its researchers amongst the top 2% of the most cited scientists in the world, according to the last ranking published by Stanford University (United States of America).

This ranking considered the most prestigious worldwide, is based on the bibliometric information contained in the Scopus database – a database from Elsevier (the research and analytics database and publisher). The 2% figure represents around 180,000 researchers from nearly 9 million scientists, and covers papers from within 22 scientific fields and 176 subfields.

Being cited in this ranking gives our scientists an international recognition and approval highlighting the research excellence on the various topics covered by EU-CONEXUS scientists.

  • From University of Rostock: 62 researchers were quoted.
  • La Rochelle Université counts 13 researchers in the ranking
  • Klaipeda Unviersity, Frederick University, University of Valencia got 1 researcher each cited in the ranking.

It is an honour to see so many researchers from EU-CONEXUS being quoted in this international ranking. Accelerating the research and innovation in Smart Urban Coastal Sustainability (SmUCS) is at the core of our European University. By offering more mobility and more opportunities to our researchers, we seek to deconstruct borders to stimulate the dissemination of knowledge and skills in order to offer the best resources for their work.

I’d like to address my congratulations to all researchers quoted in this ranking, as well as to those who aren’t but who still, through their work, contribute to find explanations and solutions to help us understand and fix the issues our world faces.”, Jean-Marc Ogier, President of EU-CONEXUS.

Stanford’s ranking is based on a composite citation index that excludes self-citations, and considers the position of researchers in the authorship of papers – with emphasis on single, first, and last authorship. The scores were calculated for the period 1996-2020, and then updated in Oct 2021 to include 2020 as a single year.
