6 scientists from the Department of Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering in the World’s Top 2% Scientist ranking
They have been identified among over 8 and a half million researchers whose scientific authority is globally recognised
Enrico Cagno, Vittorio Chiesa, Massimo Colombo, Christine Harland, Giorgio Locatelli, John Rodney Turner: these are the 6 professors of the Department of Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering included in the World’s Top 2% Scientist ranking, the global ranking of the scientists with the highest level of scientific productivity, drawn up by Stanford University in collaboration with Elsevier and the worldwide scientific research database ‘Scopus‘.
The ranking is the result of a bibliometric study, a discipline that uses mathematical and statistical techniques to analyse the quantity, quality and diffusion of publications within scientific communities. The authors analysed data relating to over 8 and a half million researchers from universities and research centres throughout the world. Among them, approximately 195,000 scientists stood out for their scientific authority and currently represent the best 2%.
Approximately 5,000 of these work (or have worked for the majority of their careers) in Italy, 185 of whom at Politecnico di Milano. Compare the downloadable data using this link
The citations and the relative h-index (an index that measures the productivity and scientific impact of an author, based on both the number of publications and the number of citations received) are evaluated for each researcher. The ranking also indicates the scientific discipline, ranging from astrophysics to zoology, and the respective ranking, according to a classification of the author’s profile obtained using advanced machine learning techniques to produce comparable results across different scientific areas.
