Islets of science in Russia

October 18, 2012, 19:00 seminar

On October 18, in the Digital October center, the Russian Venture Company held an expert seminar, “Islets of Science in Russia,” based on materials from the innovative project Body of Experts.

The first (nonexhaustive) results were presented in a report of an informal analysis of the “legal competency” of various areas of natural science and corresponding specialists in Russia. The methodology used allows information to be gathered on specialists who have relatively high citation indices in the international Web of Science database, as well as specialists who have been recommended by their highly cited colleagues. In this way, a group has been identified of scientists (around 5000 people), the results of the work of whom are well-known to their colleagues in Russia and abroad and, correspondingly, declared worthy of attention in one way or another.
