Alper-Doger Scientific Index ranks scientists according to their productivity and influence

Feevale University appears in the Latin America Top 10,000 Scientists ranking, released last week by the Alper-Doger Scientific Index (AD Scientific Index), an independent organization created by scientists Murat Alper and Cihan Doger. Researchers Marco Antônio Siqueira Rodrigues, Marlene Neves Strey and Fernando Spilki, from the postgraduate program in Materials Technology and Industrial Processes and master's degrees in Psychology and Virology, respectively, are part of the ranking which, unlike other methods that provide assessments of journals and universities, it is a classification and analysis system based on scientific performance and added value of academic scientific productivity.

The AD Scientific Index shows researchers' total and last five-year productivity coefficients based on Google Scholar scores and citations, for example, which represents their influence. In addition, the index provides ranking and evaluation of scientists in several fields of knowledge, in 11,940 universities in 195 countries, providing results for categorization and analysis.

For the Rector of Feevale, Cleber Prodanov, the fact that the Institution's researchers are in the ranking of the most influential and important in Latin America is the result of work that has been carried out since the 1990s, with the creation of the research and its development at the University.

It is important to emphasize that our research has always had the characteristic of being applied to the needs of society. So, it is very important to have individual values as we have, but also to have a large collective of people who are carrying out research and transferring knowledge to society”, he says.
