2C2T has 3 scientists in the group of the top 2% of most influential researchers in the world

The University of Minho has 65 scientists in the top 2% group of the most cited researchers worldwide over the past year, according to a study by Stanford University (USA) and the publishing group Elsevier. The list, called “World’s Top 2% Scientists 2023,” includes 210,000 scientists, with 790 of them affiliated with institutions in Portugal. UMinho appears with 15 represented units and eight more researchers compared to 2022, with its first scientist on the global list being Fernando Pacheco-Torgal (6809th place).

The document presents the best researchers on the planet across 22 areas and 174 disciplines, considering their index, publication volume, and citations of their work, based on Scopus data up to September 2023. This annual list emerged in 2019 with the aim of creating a public repository on the impact and influence of researchers on the progress of scientific knowledge and to combat self-citation abuses.
