To identify renowned people/thought leaders in the area of spintronics, the research team focused the search on researchers/scientists and other professionals in the field of spintronics who published frequently, held prestigious positions at universities or were leaders in spintronics-related businesses. The search included reviews of scholarly articles published in peer-reviewed publications sites such as Elsevier's Scopus, Science Direct, Research Gate, Elsevier Mendeley, and Web of Science. We were able to identify peer-reviewed articles with high impact scores and citations. These were the key factors that aided the identification of renowned people/thought leaders.
The h-index was utilized as a metric to identify the impact of the author(s) scientific publication which signifies the significance of their work. In addition, the number of thought leaders citation was also used to gauge the most published, total number of citations in peer-reviewed publications. Since different databases provide different h-index estimates, Elsevier Mendeley, which is updated daily, was used to locate the h-index and a total number of citations for each identified person in the area of spintronics.
Below are the h-index estimates and the total number of citations for each of the thought leaders identified.
*Albert Fert: h-index of 84 and 37,439 total citations.
