Eight Serbian scientists are on the list of 100,000 most cited scientists in the world, published by researchers at Stanford University as a result of a multi-year research project whose primary goal was the evaluation of nearly seven million world scientists.
Among them are five academicians: Ivan Gutman, professor at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, University of Kragujevac, Dušan Teodorović, professor at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering, University of Belgrade (UB), Vladimir Kostić from the Faculty of Medicine at UB, Zoran Petrović from the UB’s Institute of Physics and Nikola Konjević, professor at the Faculty of Physics at UB.
Magdalena Đorđević from the UB’s Institute of Physics, Gordana Ćirić Marjanović, professor at the Faculty of Physical Chemistry at UB and Livija Cvetićanin from the Faculty of Technical Sciences at the University of Novi Sad are among the most quoted.
By placing themselves in this group, Serbian scientists are ranked among the 1.5 percent of the best ranked in the world.
Academician Dušan Teodorović said that seven million world researchers have been ranked on a number of criteria, and believes that the proposed ranking methodology will be widely used in the world, because of the most comprehensive analysis of scientific results so far, but also because of the reputation of the institution behind it.
The results from Stanford researchers were published in the journal PLOS Biology.
