Abstract

Excellence or quality are often regarded as the holy grail of science, and it is the main goal driving scientist to pursue research that will influence the direction of their fields. This excellence, however, has no standard definition and varies across disciplines, and even from person to person, making it difficult to evaluate research and reputation of researchers. In this work, we introduce the general problem of studying the nature of reputation in the context of computer science, providing preliminary results on its relation with bibliometric indicators and hints for future experiments that will foster a better understanding of reputation in the scientific domain.
