Gogotsi Receives Highest H-Index Value Record in College of Engineering

Drexel Materials Professor Yury Gogotsi, PhD, whose research as founder and director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute and member of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has opened new possibilities for the application of nanomaterials, has received an h-index value of 100 from Google Scholar and other citation databases — the highest ever received by a professor within the College of Engineering.* The h-index classifies scholars according to the number of extant papers that have been cited by other scientists and publications. The Google Scholar distinction refers to Gogotsi’s papers published just since 2013.
