Top Authors in Information Retrieval

Thanks to Sérgio Nunes who alerted us to this ranking by Microsoft Academic Search of the Top Authors in Information Retrieval, in the past 5 years.

According to this recent ranking, two members of the TerrierTeam, namely Iadh Ounis and Craig Macdonald, are in the top 5 authors in Information Retrieval in the past 5 years (position #1 and #4, respectively). The ranking is based on in-domain citations.

This good news comes just at the start of the SIGIR 2010 Conference, which will be held in Geneva, Switzerland this week (19-23 July 2010). Several members of the team will be in attendance.

Thank you for the link. Looks reasonable with a few exceptions. E.g., where is Salton??

The ranking is for the "past five years". Salton hasn't obviously published in the last five years.
