Abstract: The paper presents a method for evaluating and ranking researchers affiliated with a research and development institute. The method has been applied within the Multi-Attribute Decision Making paradigm, multi-decision maker and mono-state of nature sub-paradigm. The decision-makers are several members of the institute’s Scientific Council, chosen by means of ONICESCU method to make the mathematical modelling. Researchers’ expertise lies in Academic Statistics, belonging to the scientometrics domain, whose weights are constructed by DEMATEL method. The evaluation of researchers uses MAUT method. By adopting the current approach, the ranking of researchers upon their scientific merit is thus made possible.

Keywords: Scientometrics, Scientific Merit, Researchers Evaluation and Ranking, Multi-Attribute Decision Making, ONICESCU, DEMATEL, MAUT Methods.
