Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professor Jordi Galí has emerged as one of the most cited researchers in Economics and Business, according to data from Thomson Scientific’s Essential Science Indicators SM. The ranking is based on total citations from January 1997 to October 2007.
Galí, who is Professor at the UPF and Director and Senior Researcher at CREI in addition to his affiliation with the GSE, appeared in the 8th position on the list, between MIT Professor Daron Acemoglu (7th) and Haas School of Business Professor David J. Teece (9th).
Essential Science Indicators lists authors ranked in the top 1% of a field over a given period, based on total citations. For the current ranking, 930 authors were listed in the field of economics and business, meaning that a total of approximately 93,000 author records were reviewed to obtain the results.
This most recent finding accompanies several previous rankings that reveal the large impact that Professor Galí's research has had on his fields of research. According a study described in “Publishing Performance of Spanish Academics: 1970-2004” by D. Rodriguez, published in the Spanish Economic Review in 2006, Galí tops the list of most productive Spanish researchers from 1990-2004.
