Professor Yury Gogotsi is in Top 50 of the Stanford List of Highly Cited Researchers

In the latest update of the Stanford List of Highly Cited Researchers published on October 19th, Professor Yury Gogotsi was in top 50 in the world among all disciplines (#44 without self-citations included) and was in top 3 in the nano field based on number of citations in 2020.

The “Stanford List” is the most thorough bibliometric analysis of over 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. Separate data are shown for career-long and single year impact. Metrics with and without self-citations and ratio of citations to citing papers are given. Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. The selection is based on the top 100,000 by c-score (with and without self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above.
