In this paper we analyze the international visibility of the members of Academy of Romanian Scientists (ARS) by using a logarithmic index in terms of the number of independent citations to their papers (i.e., the self-citations are excluded). The scientific output of Romanian members of ARS is compared to that of the ARS members working abroad (foreign scientists as well as scientists from Romanian diaspora), and to that of a set of Nobel laureates in physics, chemistry, and medicine. We stress on the fact that this kind of evaluation should be accompanied by other quantitative and/or qualitative criteria, depending on the analyzed field.
