Not on the list? You need to claim your Google Scholar identity, associate with UO, and mark your papers. Rumor has it that President Schill will buy everyone with more than 5000 citations a drink down at the faculty club next Wednesday.

    This list appears to be very incomplete. Yours truly and others not there. Not registered with google scholars, perhaps?

    We must have a very distinguished faculty, some have more citations than Einstein!

    Of course, Einstein quit publishing in 1955. Imagine what his h-index might be if he had kept going. Could have built quite a reputation!

      Only individuals who have set up a google Scholar profile are included. Some folks set up profiles for deceased individuals [ at least I assume Darwin did not do his own!]. So set one up!

        At least one person on the list is, in fact, deceased! (And, as HUB mentioned, it excludes some stellar people without Google Scholar profiles.)

          yes indeed; using web-of- science, and the correction factor for chemists [ see below] I put Matthews at ~ 50-75,000 GS citations.

    Regarding psychology, when you have a reproducability crisis you end up citing a lot of papers because none of them agree….:-)

      There is a amusing index one can calculate. Web-of Science[ ISI] counts citations in a select group of journals, conference proceedings, and books . google Scholar counts a large array of sources as valid citing documents [ hard to know just what, but its some presence on the WEB that counts]. So one can get the count ratio of GS vs Web Of Science; for fun call this the Softness Index; its quite variable among disciplines, close to 1-1.5 in physics/chemistry, scientific-ecology, molecular biology….maybe 3 in applied ecology like fisheries… up to 4-5 in Economics and Psychology. Some of the causal-stuff for this variation is the low coverage of books in ISI [ except in Social science], and the coverage of the Gray Literature in GS[ fisheries has a vast gray lit]: Fun to speculate on causal factors here.

        All of this is in addition to the system-wide bias that appears to exist in relation to departments where research is more oriented toward practice and less toward publishing, like art, architecture, and similar disciplines. To take a list like this (somewhat) seriously, it might have to broken down by discipline, after which one could compare faculty from a given discipline at the UO with faculty in that discipline as a whole. Tricky business.

          This is true. In architectural practice, the traditional methodology is to just copy the work of others, without citation. This puts us at a distinct disadvantage in academia.

    I think most of us faculty will claim that we are on this list and therefore the flaw rides with how citations are counted.

    In my own case, I may or may not be on this list -but

    a) from my own experience Google scholar overcounts citations and they must be filtered – this seems to be about a 10% effect

    b) while I am not a strong fan of H-scores, I do think they have some value and are better than number of citations; since you get that for free from google scholar you might want to do a list of 100 h-scores –
    maybe without names but just research areas

    c) citations really need to be normalized to the growth of publications in a field – its is ridiculous to talk about Einstein at a time when the number of physical journals was about 50 times less than is now and the actual number of physicists was greatly less than now.

    d) the most difficult thing to do with this kind of data is to devise an IMPACT parameter – there have been various attempts at this, but all on them are flawed.

    More

    1) I assume this list was set up to show where Freyd is and that is fine – just change the title of the post to reflect that

    2) I suspect that Brian Mathews would be in the top 3 were is profile included

    3) I hope penis evny doesn’t occur as a result of this post – to all: this is not the correct way to measure size …

  5. environmental necessity says:

    These are all great scholars we are fortunate to have as members of the UO community. There is a least one individual on the Nobel bubble in the group.

    That said, no one cognizant of the state-of-the-art in bibliometrics or citation analyses takes raw citation count alone seriously as a measure of productivity or quality of scholarship.

    For one thing, this is Google Scholar by itself, and not even their more sophisticated impact measures such as the h-index (itself problematic). It does not index all and it also indexes marginally-academic citations while discounting web-only scholarship (ironically). Second, it doesn’t normalize for field publishing norms such as article length, format, extent of time in development, or quality of peer review. Third, it counts all citations equally even if the citation is in a low-impact journal. Fourth, it obviously advantages older scholars regardless of the quality or impact of their work simply due to longevity and opportunity. Fifth, it is no measure of the quality or impact of the contribution (“this is the most idiotic article in the history of scholarship” counts the same as “this is groundbreaking work that will change the field”). Finally, publication and citation by other scholars is but one aspect, albeit the most important aspect, of faculty “excellence”.

    The main point: No one who understands modern influence metrics uses raw citation count. It is like rating the offensive impact of baseball players using only batting average. It tells you something, but not as much as most assume.

    • OSU fan says:

      In a real sense the list has existed for a long time, years,as it does for any University.
      Just find any UO faculty with a GS profile, and put UOREGON into the GS profile search box,… hit enter: this list will be the result. Sometimes one must be a little tricky in the search phrase[ UOREGON works well for UO], but its pretty easy nonetheless.
      Actually the UO list has gotten bigger since UOM pulled this stunt; several of your highly cited physical scientists now have public GS profiles, and I can detect other UO folks who have done the same. So the list here is already dated.Getting folks to be public with GS Profiles seems a worthy goal.
      As for the usefulness of the ranking, many wrinkles to consider, and several are in this thread.
