Engineering professors from New Mexico State University have earned the distinction of being among the top 2% of scientists worldwide as measured by the impact of their research publications. The engineering authors were identified in a worldwide database of top scientists created by Stanford University and recently published in the journal Public Library of Science Biology.
“Our faculty are at the forefront of several key research areas in engineering. They are among the best of our peers in terms of research productivity. The number of publications per faculty and number of citations, place our researchers very competitively among our peers,” said Lakshmi N. Reddi, dean of the College of Engineering.
John P.A. Ioannidis, professor at Stanford University, led the creation of the database which ranks the most cited authors across all scientific disciplines. The publicly available database classifies the publications in 22 scientific fields with 176 subfields.
The study lists the top 100,000 scientists in all fields. The data also include scientists who are not in the top 100,000 of all research disciplines, but are within the top 2% of scientists of their main subfield discipline, assessing career-long citation impact up until the end of 2019 and for citation impact during the single calendar year 2019.
Earning a place among the world’s top 2% scientists ranked in their specific research subfields over their entire career as well as for the year 2019 are the following NMSU engineering professors:
