Phys Author Rank Algorithm is a website where physicists can check the evolution of their own scientific rank. Scientific rank is calculated using the Science Author Rank Algorithm on a weighted author citation network. At the moment, our database is composed of all 407,236 papers published between 1893 and 2006 in journals of the collection of the American Physical Society. The ranking is restricted only to physicists with at least a publication in this database, but our technique is flexible to any citation database and we are planning to analyze other scientific disciplines with the same method.


Phys Author Rank Algorithm perfoms rankings as the result of our proposed technique for measuring the rank of scientists. The ranking obtained by our procedure is just an indicator and cannot embrace the multifaceted nature and the many processes at the origin of the scientific importance of authors.
