SSE Professor Ramirez-Marquez Among Most Impactful Authors in Reliability Engineering
Stevens professor Jose Ramirez-Marquez has been one of the leading research contributors to the prominent international journal Reliability Engineering and System Safety (RESS) during the 21st century, according to a study published In November 2022.
Ramirez-Marquez was published 43 times during the period. The study used thorough informetric and bibliometric analysis to capture publishing data from the years 2001-2021. The study broke the numbers into three time periods: 2001-07, 2008-14 and 2015-21. Ramirez-Marquez, associate professor and division director of Enterprise Science and Engineering in the School of Systems & Enterprises, was published nine times between 2001-07, 22 times between 2008-14 and 12 times between 2015-21. Only four contributors were published more between 2008-14.
"This is what scholarly research impact is all about – a constant series of publications that builds a research portfolio in collaboration with my students and research colleagues," said Ramirez-Marquez.
Two publications that Ramirez-Marquez co-authored were among the top works cited by others. A review of definitions and measures of systems resilience, which was published in 2016, was cited 587 times, the sixth-most cited publication since 2001 and the most recent among the top 10 cited works. Generic metrics and quantitative approaches for system resilience as a function of time, published in 2012, was cited 390 times, 12th most.
When converted to average annual citations, A review of definitions and measures of systems resilience ranked second among all publications at 97.83 per year. Generic metrics and quantitative approaches for system resilience as a function of time was cited 39 times per year, 13th most.
At an institutional level, Ramirez-Marquez’s efforts helped Stevens achieve a ranking of 25th among all institutions worldwide and seventh among American schools.
Dr. Ramirez-Marquez, a former Fulbright Scholar, holds degrees from Rutgers University in industrial engineering (Ph.D. and M.Sc.) and statistics (M.Sc.), and from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in actuarial science.
