Eight faculty members and four emeritus faculty in electrical and computer engineering are included on an Elsevier list of the top 2% of scientists in their fields for either single-year impact or career impact in 2021.

This fall, Elsevier published its “updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators.”

Professor Rashid Ansari, Professor Ahmet Enis Cetin, Associate Professor Pai-Yen Chen, Professor Danilo Erricolo, Professor Sudip K. Mazumder, Professor Dan Schonfeld, and Professor and Department Head Daniela Tuninetti are on the list of the top 2% in their fields for “career-long productivity.”

Chen, Mazumder, and Assistant Professor Mohammad B. Shadmand were also cited for their single-year impact in 2021, again representing the top 2% in their fields.

The emeritus faculty recognized for career-long impact included Professor Emeritus Daniel Graupe, Professor Emeritus James Lin, Distinguished Professor Emeritus Michael Stroscio, and Distinguished Professor Emeritus Piergiorgio L.E. Uslenghi were included in the career impact category. Lin was also in the single-year impact category for 2021.

Research publishing company Elsevier created the publicly available database of more than 100,000 top scientists that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator.

Metrics with and without self-citations and the ratio of citations to citing papers are given. Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. The selection is based on the top 100,000 by c-score, which measures the scientific impact of scientists and ranks all scientists from highest to lowest, or a percentile rank of 2% or above.
