CME researchers among top 2% in their fields
Four faculty members from civil, materials, and environmental engineering are on the Elsevier list of top 2% in their fields for single year impact in 2022. Elsevier recently published its “October 2023 data-update for ‘updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators.’”
Elsevier created a public database of more than 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 is 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 174 sub-fields.
Career-long data are updated to the end of 2022. The selection is based on the top 100,000 by c-score, which measures the scientific impact of scientists and ranks all scientists from highest to lowest, or a percentile rank of 2% or above.
