This paper summarizes a ranking of Canadian researchers and institutions in the field of software engineering from 1996 to 2006, based on two metrics: impact factors, and h-index. The ranking is going to be an ongoing, annual event to identify the top 50 scholars and top 50 institutions over a 10-year period in Canada. The rankings are calculated based on the impact factor and h-index of papers published in top 12 selected software engineering journals and conferences. The top-ranked institution is Carleton University, and the top-ranked scholars (by each of the two metrics) are Lionel Briand (formerly with Carleton University) and Gail Murphy from UBC.
