Поиграл с базой данных Elsevier самых цитируемых ученых. Я на 27023 месте (в другом варианте - на 11,970) в мире по всем специальностям. По Mechanical Engineering - на 223 в мире, на 68 в США и на 16ом на Среднем Западе (Висконсин, Мичиган, Иллионойс, Огайо Миннесота, Индиана). Выше меня в списке в основном старцы, начавшие работать еще в 1970е. На английском, потому что хочу поставить в блог.


I am not a big fan of measuring scientific accomplishments by citation. Your results, found in your publications, should speak for themselves. The problem, however, that many people would not want to read your papers and discuss your results. Many people in Academe would also make various weird assumptions based on all kinds of superficial consideration, instead of reading your papers and viewing them in the context of the scientific literature. Consequently, unfortunately, you results do not always speak by themselves. In that case analyzing citation does not hurt.

Elsevier has recently published an updated database "Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators" https://elsevier.digitalcommonsdata.com/datasets/btchxktzyw/3
Their methodology is explained in detail at their website. Apparently, they ranked top ~2% of world researchers, which constitutes about 190,000 out of the total roughly 10 million researchers in the world.

I was pleased to see that I am at the 27,023-th place (or have rank 11,970) out of all world researchers, scientists and scholars in any field. I decided to further play with numbers in order to better understand it.

First, I selected those who work in my formal field, Mechanical Engineering (ME). Namely, those who indicate ME either as their primary or as their secondary field. That filtered out more than 97% researchers. ME is not the hottest scientific field, so among top cited scholars there are only 2% of mechanical engineers. I turned out to be at place 223 among all researchers identified as Mechanical Engineering in the world.

Then I decided to filter only US-based researchers. Many of top-cited mechanical engineers work in the US. I turned out to be at number 68 among all Mechanical Engineers in the US. And after that I decided to consider the US Midwest, namely, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Minnesota. You must compare yourself with you peers, not with the MIT, harvard, Stanford or Caltech scientists. I turned out #16 in our region.

I think it is interesting to see who is in the list above myself. Some people have retired, but most of them are active. Almost all of the 15 guys above me (with two exceptions) started their careers in the 1960-1980s. What does it tell? I do not know. But in my opinion, I am doing not bad. :)
