Cybermetrics Lab named scientists and researchers as Top 150 Filipino Scientists based on their performance according to their Google Scholar Citations public profiles.

Sixty-four researchers of the University of the Philippines made it to the Top 150 Filipino Scientists/Scholars by Webometrics.

De La Salle University’s Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation and University Fellow Dr. Raymond Tan topped this year’s country’s list of the most outstanding and renowned scientists from different universities and government agencies.

Tan, who focuses studies in process systems engineering and process integration, with applications to low-carbon energy systems and sustainable industrial operations, nagged the top spot with 2,849 citations.

Tan was followed by Maricar Prudente, a full professor at the Science Education Department of De La Salle University-Manila and an ecotoxicologist, conducting researches on environmental monitoring of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). Prudente has 2,588 citations per Google Scholar.

The list also mentioned researchers of other institutions such as Ateneo de Manila University and University of Santo Tomas. So far, Ateneo de Manila University has only 7 scientists in the list.

PhilStar said the list was collected during the third week of May 2015 from the public profiles of researchers working in Philippine institutions. “It is a BETA ranking of the scientists according to their declared presence in the Google Scholar Citations database.”

The list of researchers was ranked first by h-index (a tool that measures the efficiency and citation bearing of a published research work) in decreasing order and, when ties appear, then by the total number of citations as a secondary criteria.
