Author Rankings in the Field of 3D Bioprinting

August 5, 2020

A recent study published in the Journal of Biomedical Semantics performed an analysis and ranking of the most prominent, influential and prolific authors in the rapidly expanding field of 3D bioprinting.  The findings revealed that Ali Khademhosseini, Ph.D., of the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation, ranked as the second-most prolific author in terms of productivity, citation impact, and collaborative networking. 

The study was conducted using a database of 2,088 articles published on bioprinting from 2007 to 2017.  In the initial analysis, the top ten authors were culled from the database using a threshold based on the number of articles with ten or more citations.  Further studies were performed using network map analysis to measure the strength of the authors’ collaborative connections, and this data was factored into the rankings.

The results from these findings are useful for mapping the strength of authors’ collaborative abilities and their associations with specific disciplines.  It is also a good indicator of peer influence, as revealed by the authors’ citation data.  Such indicators are useful tools in helping researchers seek potential collaborators, and it underscores the importance of scientific collaborations in generating high-quality research and technology.
