It is important to note that, while these rankings are useful tools for showcasing scientific work, they should not be considered the sole criteria for evaluating the worth and contribution of our researchers. Science is a complex and multidimensional activity, and its impact is not always fully reflected in conventional metrics.


We value diverse approaches, interdisciplinary collaboration, and innovation in scientific research, recognizing that the contribution of our scientists goes beyond numerical rankings. We appreciate the inherent complexity of science and understand that its positive impact manifests in various ways, transcending the limitations of traditional metrics.
