PortEconomics members received a welcomed acknowledgment by a report ranking 10 members of the team in the list of the best in the academic world per research field.
Since its establishment, PortEconomics has provided freely accessible research, education, information, and network-building material on critical issues of port economics, management, and policies. The initiative is developed and empowered by the members of the PortEconomics group, including scholars from all parts of the world.
Last week, a global report confirmed the leading global role of PortEconomics members in transportation and logistics research around the globe.
The academic world has developed a wide array of metrics to measure the research output of scholars, such as the publication statistics available via the Web of Science, ScholarOne, or Google Scholar.
Elsevier’s science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators by John Ioannidis (Stanford University) is one of the leading sources to analyze career-long data in different research fields.
The September 2022 report ranks the 2% best performing scholars of a total of 19,216 scientists in the primary field “Logistics & Transportation” by the so-called c-score.
Although port and maritime economics is only a sub-field, 10 PortEconomics members made it to the global 2% highest ranked scholars in the field of ‘Logistics & Transportation’. In order of ranking, these are: Τho Notteboom (no 21) Jean-Paul Rodrigue (no. 73), Prof Dr Jasmine S.L. Lam (no. 80), Cesar Ducruet (no. 143), Peter de Langen (no. 182), Adolf K.Y. Ng (no. 189), Mary Brooks (no. 244), Pierre Cariou (no. 314), Thanos Pallis (no. 316) and Jason Monios (no. 383).
