Student, Faculty of Medicine of Sfax, University of Sfax, Sfax, Tunisiab Ph.D., D.Pharm and AsP. Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Monastir, Monastir, TunisiaIntroduction:Ranking Scientists had been a huge purpose in order to guess who is the best in a country.1 However, in several important fields like Economic Sciences and even in general context, the Ranking of Potential Scientist is limited to developed countries like France, Germany, United States and Netherlands2. For example, the Rankings of Van Ours is made in particular for Dutch Economists3 4. So, there are no national rankings for scientists in developing countries and even in some developed countries3 and that affected a lot the ranking of developing countries in international classifications5. In fact, the ranking of Tunisia in IDEAS ranking had been 101st in 2012 and had worsened to be 118th in 20145 6 and the ranking of Tunisia in SCImago Ranking had been 86th in 20145 according to its number of citations5.

The other benefit of using Google Scholar is that this interface divides the articles...
