University of Alaska System
University of Alaska System (UA System) is a system of public universities in Alaska. It was established in 1917 under Article VII of the Alaska State Constitution. The UA system comprises three separately accredited universities: the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), and the University of Alaska Southeast (UAS). UAA is the largest university in the state. Top courses of the university system are ecology, computer science, and engineering.
University of Alaska System Key Statistics
The entire university system has seven areas of study, namely business, accounting and economics, education and teaching, science and engineering, liberal arts and humanities, computers & technology, nursing & healthcare, and workforce programs. It offers 585 unique degrees, certificate or endorsement programs, and 126 elearning programs. Its notable academic departments include the geology department, the atmospheric sciences department, and the wildlife biology department.
The UA System has a population of 26,641 full- and part-time students. The university has 16 campuses, with the main campuses located in Fairbanks, Juneau, and Anchorage.
Its library system includes eight libraries: the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library and Keith B. Mather Library (UAF), the William A. Egan Library, the UAS Egan Library, and the Ketchikan Campus Library (UAS), and the UAA/APU Consortium Library, the Alvin S. Okeson Library, the Carolyn Floyd Library (UAA).
Other University of Alaska System key statistics include the University of Alaska Museum, housed in the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus.
University of Alaska System Research
Research at the UA system is acknowledged for its leading works in arctic research, including the region’s biology, geography, and geophysics. The university system’s researchers are also viewed as authorities on Alaska Native studies, complemented by works in engineering and supercomputing. The system enjoys a research expenditure of $163.2 million, provided by the National Science Foundation, private collaboration, and a substantial $356.3 million endowment.
The top three University of Alaska System research fields are computer science, mathematics, and ecology. Its researchers have been published in publications like the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, Remote Sensing, and arXiv: Populations and Evolution. Its researchers had been invited to attend and present papers at international conferences, such as the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, the International Conference in Central Europe on Computer Graphics and Visualization, and the International Conference on Data Technologies and Applications.

D-index (Discipline H-index) only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline in
contrast to General H-index which accounts for publications across all disciplines.
Our research was coordinated by Imed Bouchrika, PhD, a computer scientist with a well-established record
of collaboration on a number of international research projects with different partners from the academic
community. His role was to make sure all data remained unbiased, accurate, and up-to-date.
We list only scientists having D-Index >= 30 within the area of
Ecology and Evolution. If you or other scholars are not listed, we appreciate if you can
