Three papers authored by Dr. Yimin D. Zhang and his research team have been included in the most recent Google Scholar h5 indexes respectively for the three major sources to disseminate signal processing articles: IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (T-SP), IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP), and IEEE Signal Processing Letters (SPL). These three papers are:
Qin, Y. D. Zhang, and M. G. Amin, “Generalized coprime array configurations for direction-of-arrival estimation,” IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, vol. 63, no. 6, pp. 1377-1390, March 2015. (93 citations)
D. Zhang, M. G. Amin, and B. Himed, “Sparsity-based DOA estimation using co-prime arrays,” IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, Vancouver, Canada, May 2013. (84 citations)
D. Zhang and M. G. Amin, “Anti-jamming GPS receiver with reduced phase distortions,” IEEE Signal Processing Letters, vol. 19, no. 10, pp. 635-638, Oct. 2012. (53 citations)
H5-index is the h-index for journals and conferences, and is evaluated based on articles published in the last 5 complete years. For example, the h5 index for the IEEE T-SP is 87, implying that 87 articles published in 2012-2016 have at least 87 citations each. The h5 index for IEEE ICASSP is 67, and that for the IEEE SPL is 50.
The paper “Generalized coprime array configurations for direction-of-arrival estimation” was also identified by Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science as a “hot paper”. This recognition is reserved to papers published in the past two years and received enough citations in January/February 2017 to place it in the top 0.1% of papers in the academic field of Engineering.
