The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary is based on data
consolidated from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
gathered on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Animal Science and Veterinary research
Our best researchers ranking is a reliable lineup of leading scholars from the area of Animal Science and Veterinary, created using a detailed analysis of 166,880 researchers discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary, over 40040 researchers were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be examined is placed at 20 if most of their publications are in the area of Animal Science and Veterinary. The inclusion requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists assessed for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars are incorporated into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Since our main goal is to guarantee that only credible scientists are mentioned in Research.com ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a complete means to assess the contributions of scientists. This is why we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. While it’s not a element impacting a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the number of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each researcher’s D-index using data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A thorough explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies worldwide to explore where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire research community to discover who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
