Three UA researchers among the most influential in the world: two are CESAM members

The University of Aveiro (UA) has three researchers whose scientific work is among the most cited in the world by other scientists. The guarantee comes from Clarivate’s Highly Cited Researchers 2023 list, one of the most important rankings in the academic world.

Armando da Costa Duarte and Teresa Rocha Santos, both researchers at the Centre for Environmental and Marine Studies (CESAM), and Jorge Alexandre Saraiva, from LAQV-REQUIMTE, are the three UA researchers included in Clarivate’s Highly Cited Researchers 2023, a list that analyzed the work of 7125 scientists from 69 countries.

Armando Duarte and Jorge Saraiva have been on the Clarivate list for three consecutive years. Teresa Rocha Santos repeats her presence from last year.

Created by Clarivate, a global research consultancy, the list of names comes from articles ranked in the top one percent of the most cited research articles by scientific area and year of publication in the Web of Science citation index, together with analyses carried out by bibliometric experts and data scientists from Clarivate’s Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).

This ranking aims to provide global data and segmented analyses, recognize and disseminate the impact of research, promote innovation and present a tool that allows scientists/researchers who have demonstrated influence through the publication of several highly cited articles over the last decade to be aggregated in an annual list.
