UNM ranked for materials science citations
UNM is ranked 5th out of the top 100 federally funded institutions for the
impact of materials science papers during the years 1996-2000 by the Institute
for Scientific Information (ISI).
The list is published in ISIs Science Citation Index, which measures
the number of times a paper is cited by other researchers.
Abhaya K. Datye, director of UNMs Center for Micro-Engineering Materials (CMEM), said the ranking shows that UNM has a broad-based materials science effort, since it includes all papers from UNM and their citation frequency.
Jeff Brinker, co-director of UNMs Center for Micro-Engineered Materials, said, The fact that out of hundreds of universities conducting materials science research, UNM has the fifth-highest citation ranking means that our collective materials science research effort is highly valued within the scientific community.
