Chilean Political Science Ranking

Researcher: Bastián González-Bustamante

Associates: Alejandro Olivares, Carla Cisternas and Rodrigo Cuevas

Project Status: Active    English    Spanish


This ranking is presented from the highest to the lowest H-Index. The number of cites has been used as a second criterion in case of a tie in the H-Index.

It has been elaborated according to the following sampling criteria. First, all the paper-givers with a Chilean academic affiliation in the political science congress organised by the Chilean Association of Political Science (ACCP in Spanish) in 2018 were identified. After that, those who possessed an active Google Scholar account were considered. Subsequently, well-known researchers in the Chilean field who also possess a Google Scholar profile, suggested by others selected in the previous step, were added. Finally, authors who had added to their profile publications that were not their authorship (because of name confusion, deliberately or without realising it) were removed from the ranking.

Furthermore, a consistency index (C-Index) was calculated on March 2021. C-Index goes from zero to 100 and reflects the Google profiles’ consistency in terms of authorship. Lower values are associated with more significant inconsistencies, therefore, the researcher’s indicators could be biased, and his/her position might be overestimated.

We would like to thank Patricio Navia for his valuable comments and contributions.

Researchers to be Added



Please bear in mind that this citation data comes from own user-created profiles on Google Scholar, whose coverage is not as rigorous as Scopus or Web of Science. In addition, the main ranking criterion is the H-Index, which has some limitations and is subject to bias and manipulation in some cases. Our quarterly ranking elaboration does not involve rearranging data, we focus on ordering the list by H-Index and citation.
