The Stanford University ranking selects the 2% of the world's most cited researchers according to their scientific trajectory. The new edition also lists Anitua as the most relevant Spanish researcher in dentistry in the last year.
Vitoria, 4 November 2022. Dr. Eduardo Anitua, scientific director of the company BTI Biotechnology Institute, heads the list of thirteen Spanish researchers in the dental sector who have been included in the latest edition of the ranking prepared by Stanford University (Ranking of the World Scientists: World's Top 2% Scientists), which lists the most influential scientists in the world.
The ranking, produced by Stanford University and published by Elsevier, identifies researchers whose work has been most cited during their scientific career evaluated between 1996-2021, and is based on several parameters including number of indexed publications, citations received, h-index, co-authorship, etc. As a result, a database of more than 195,000 top scientists in various fields of knowledge has been created, representing 2% of the most relevant researchers worldwide.
Particularly, in the area of Dentistry, it identifies 1,573 researchers from all over the world, including 13 Spaniards. The first in this list is Dr. Eduardo Anitua, who rises to the 56th position in the world ranking.
This latest version of the ranking also identifies the most influential researchers in the last year, based on the scientific impact of their work published in 2021. In this most recent list of influence, Dr. Anitua is once again at the top of the list of Spanish dentists, occupying the 22nd position worldwide.
For Dr. Eduardo Anitua, founder and scientific director of BTI, "to top this ranking is both an honour and a commitment to continue our dedication to scientific research. Moreover, I am very happy that every year more and more Spaniards appear in this ranking, because this means that Spanish dentistry continues to increase its prestige, placing itself at the highest level worldwide".
