CyI faculty listed among world’s leading scientists


Cyprus Institute faculty have recently been listed in two prestigious rankings of the world’s top scientists.

The first list, entitled “Updated science-wide author databases of standardised citation indicators” is published by Stanford University (USA), and is based on a number of indicators focusing on the impact of published work of millions of scientists worldwide and throughout their academic career, and specifically on the citations they receive according to the Scopus database.

In the list, scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. The selection is based on the top 100,000 scientists.

The full-time faculty members of The Cyprus Institute in the list are Professor Salvatore Carlucci, associated with the Energy, Environment, and Water Research Center (EEWRC), Professor and director-elect of the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC)  Constantine Dovrolis, and ERA chair professor Vangelis Harmandaris, associated with the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Centre (CaSToRC).

AG Leventis professor, associated with the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Centre (STARC) Thilo Rehren, and professor, interim director of the Science and Technology Enabled Development, Innovation and Policy Research Centre (STEDI-RC), and associated with Energy Policy at the Energy, Environment and Water Research Centre (EEWRC) Theodoros Zachariadis were also listed.

Professors Ph Ciais and J Lelieveld are also listed in a second, narrower ranking entitled “Highly Cited Researchers” published by Clarivate, which lists just 6,938 researchers worldwide, and whose papers rank in the top 1 per cent by citations in their field, as found in Web of Science database. Of the world’s population of scientists and social scientists, Highly Cited Researchers are 1 in 1,000.

The Cyprus Institute is proud of this significant achievement and warmly congratulates each faculty member for their consistently high level of research output that has both local significance and global impact.
