For the second consecutive year in 2022 and 2023, Juan L. G. Guirao is ranked among the top 2% of scientific authors with works of the highest impact.

The Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (UPCT) boasts ten of its researchers listed in the annual ranking of the most cited scientists in 2022. This classification, recently published by the prestigious Stanford University in California, highlights the work of the 2% of authors worldwide whose academic studies have had a significant impact.

The team of experts led by Stanford researcher John P.A. Loannidis has updated the annual ranking of the list of the most cited researchers throughout their careers. In this elite group of the top 2% of the most cited scientists, six researchers from UPCT stand out: Toribio Fernández, José Pérez Pérez, Francisco Artés Calero, María Dolores Bermúdez, Joaquín Zueco, and José Luis Gómez Tornero.

Among the professors from UPCT who top the list of researchers with the highest number of bibliographic citations from last year are Juan Gabriel Cegarra, Toribio Fernández, Emma García Meca, Carmelo Reverte, José Alberto Acosta, Pablo Bielza, Raúl Zornoza, José Pérez Pérez, Juan Luis García Guirao, and José Luis Gómez Tornero. These distinguished academics teach at the Faculty of Business Sciences and the Schools of Industrial, Agricultural, and Telecommunication Engineering.

To create these rankings, a meticulous analysis of the Scopus database, encompassing authors from around the world, was conducted. Composite indicators were utilized, which included metrics such as received citations, the H-index, Schreiber’s Hm index adjusted for co-authorship, and citations of articles in various authorship positions.

Note: The rankings are obtained from citations and impact throughout the year 2022
