100 scientific articles

Text by Erik Sturkell

By December 2023, I reached the number 100 of peer-reviewed articles that I’m either first author or co-author on. My first research article was published in 1990 in the Soviet journal Okeanologija AN SSSR and published in Russian. It reported the scientific results of the international geological expedition in the Baltic Sea (24th journey of the scientific-investigational vessel “Professor Stokman”). My average publication rate for peer-reviewed articles is above 3 articles per year for the period 1990–2023. The articles cover many disciplines but the majority of them reports on results of research studies on volcanoes in Iceland. I’m the first author of 26 of the 100 articles. Of the 100 articles, two are published in Nature and three in Nature Geoscience, and they make up the top-3 most cited papers on my list (no. 75, 54, and 73).
