The 3 researchers have been included in the second edition of the most outstanding women scientists ranking (CSIC)

Last May 23, the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) published the second edition of the Ranking of Spanish and foreign researchers working in Spain, according to public data from Google Scholar.

The ranking orders, in the first place, the researchers by their h index (a measure that takes into account the quantity and quality of the citations that have received their scientific articles) and, in the second place, the number of citations that they have received. To be included in the ranking, women researchers must have an h index of at least 18.

Of the 8,068 researchers listed in the ranking, 117 are from UPC. Among them, are the researchers Teresa Vidal, Blanca Roncero and Cristina Valls, who are part of the CELBIOTECH_Paper Engineering research group from UPC. Her research focuses on the manipulation and modification of compounds from the pulp and paper sector and on the utilization and conversion of plant biomass, to obtain eco- and bio-products with advanced properties.  

The objective of the ranking is to increase the visibility of the work carried out by women researchers, and it is part of the policies of commitment to gender equality of the CSIC, the institution to which the Cybermetrics Lab belongs, which has drawn up the ranking.
