Recently, the 16th edition of Webometrics Ranking of Spanish researchers and researchers working in Spanish Institutions (Spain) according to their Google Scholar Citations public profiles (http://www.webometrics.info) has been published.
This edition data was collected during the second week of March 2021. The list includes the top 91.000 profiles ranked by h-index in decreasing order and then by the total number of citations.
Eugenio Oñate, professor of the School of Civil Engineering of UPC, is in the position 372th of the ranking with an h-index of h=75 and 25.983 citations.
There are 108 CIMNE researchers listed in Webometrics, three of them among the 1.000 first positions:
Prof. Eugenio Oñate (372th position)
Prof. Antonio Gens (458th position)
Prof. Eduardo Alonso (898th position)
This list ranks Prof. Eugenio Oñate, director of CIMNE, as the highest cited researcher of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC).
Another reference website in research ranking is Webcindario (https://grupodih.info/). In February 2021, it has updated its yearly list about prizes, women researchers and its ranking list by provinces.
The following list is a summary of the CIMNE researchers that appear in the one made by DIH Group / Webcindario:
Mathematics, Interdisciplinary Applications
Four CIMNE researchers are the top positions in this rank:
Oñate, Eugenio (Fh: 1,42)
Codina, Ramon (Fh: 1,06)
Huerta, Antonio (Fh: 1)
Idelsohn, Sergio (Fh: 0,94)
Barbat, Alex (Fh: 0,83)
Engineering, Geological Two CIMNE researchers lead this rank:
The International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering received the Severo Ochoa accreditation in December 2019. CIMNE became thus one of the six “Centre for Excellence Severo Ochoa” accredited by the Spanish State Research Agency (attached to the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities).
CIMNE has reinforced and reorganized its current research activities in order to contribute to overcome.
With this action, the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities aims to promote high-impact research carried out in the R&D centres of Spain.
Severo Ochoa Centres stand out both for the international notoriety of the scientific contributions they make, and for their innovative capacity and their intense relationship with the business sector. They are also world reference centres capable of attracting international talent.
