Fifteen HEC Montréal faculty members appear in an international ranking of research citations and impact indices for 2020. The list was published on the Mendeley website, a search tool belonging to Elsevier, the Dutch scientific publisher.
Jean-Charles Chebat, deceased in 2019, who was a HEC Montréal professor for many years, is also in this ranking.
In addition, Mendeley measures researchers’ influence by compiling their citations over the past 25 years. This list features Honorary Professor Henri Barki and Affiliated Professor Alain Haurie.
The ranking is based on a dataset of close to 8 million authors worldwide, in 20 disciplines and from both the academic and private sectors. Given that the ranking consists of just over 190,000 researchers, their inclusion in this select group means that our professors are among the most influential 2% in their respective research fields.
In the Operations Research and Business & Management fields, note the exceptional standing of Professor Emeritus Gilbert Laporte and Full Academic Researcher Danny Miller, both ranked in the top 10 worldwide in their fields.
