More researchers from the NOVA School of Science and Technology in the world top


More researchers from the NOVA School of Science and Technology were included in the latest update to the ranking of the world's most cited scientists, now made available by Stanford University (California, USA).

The inventory, identified as the “World's Top 2% Scientists list”, is the result of a study coordinated by John Ioannidis, a professor at Stanford University. It identifies over 100,000 influential researchers from 149 countries, in 22 scientific areas and 176 disciplines, whose work has accelerated progress and productivity in their areas. In Portugal, more than 700 researchers are appointed, 40 of which are from the NOVA School of Science and Technology.

The study, now updated and released on October 19, resulted in two lists based on distinct categories: career-long impact and single-year impact. The ranking was supported by Scopus, an international online database of scientific articles, and respective citations, in various typologies, for academic journals and publications.

The NOVA School of Science and Technology researchers highlighted by Stanford include: Ana Rita C. Duarte (Chemistry), Douglas W. Mckee (Chemistry), Elvira Fortunato (Material Science), Fernando C. Lidon (Earth Science), Fernando Pina (Chemistry), João Paulo G. Crespo (Chemistry), José L. Capelo (Chemistry), José Paulo Sampaio (Life Sciences), Luís PN Rebelo (Chemistry), Maria Ascensão Reis (Chemistry), Marcos Raydan (Mathematics) , Manuel AG Silva (Civil Engineering), Pedro Viana Baptista (Life Sciences), Rosa M. Miranda (Mechanical and Industrial Engineering), Rodrigo Martins (Materials Science), Rodrigo Gonçalves (Civil Engineering), Rui Oliveira (Chemistry), Sónia AC Carabineiro (Chemistry).

Also on the list of impact throughout the career, there are the following names: João Aires de Sousa (Chemistry), José P.B. Mota (Chemistry), Luís Caires (Computers), Luis M. Camarinha-Matos (Electric and Computer Engineering), Luís Moniz Pereira (Computers), Manuel Nunes da Ponte (Chemistry), Manuel D. Ortigueira (Electric and Computer Engineering), Ricardo Vigário (Physics), Rita A. Ribeiro (Electric and Computer Engineering), Svetlozar Velizarov (Chemistry).

In the list that reports the researchers with impact over the last year, the following were also highlighted: Alexandra R. Fernandes (Life Sciences), Alexandre Paiva (Chemistry), Ana Luisa Fernando (Biomass Sciences and Technology), Carla Farinha (Environment) , Catarina Roma-Rodrigues (Chemistry), Dawei Liang (Physics), Filomena Freitas (Chemistry), Hugo Biscaia (Mechanical and Industrial Engineering), JP Oliveira (Mechanical and Industrial Engineering), João Martins (Electronic and Computer Engineering), Pedro Barquinha (Material Science) and Tomás B. Ramos (Environment).

The NOVA School of Science and Technology is proud to include so many representatives on this list, a mark of its position as a research oriented school.
