Scholar Metrics include journal articles from websites that follow our inclusion guidelines and selected conference articles in Computer Science & Electrical Engineering. Publications with fewer than 100 articles in 2013-2017, or publications that received no citations over these years are not included.

You can browse publications in specific categories such as Food Science & TechnologySustainable Energy, or Public Health as well as broad areas like Engineering & Computer Science or Humanities, Literature & Arts . You will see the top 20 publications ordered by their five-year h-index and h-median metrics. You also can browse the top 100 publications in several languages – for example, Portuguese and Spanish. For each publication, you can view the top papers by clicking on the h5-index.

Scholar Metrics include a large number of publications beyond those listed on the per-category and per-language pages. You can find these by typing words from the title in the search box, e.g., [heart], [water], [saude].
