The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary was created using data
derived from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
collected on 06-12-2021. Position in the ranking is based on a
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Animal Science and Veterinary research
Our best researchers ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scholars from the field of Animal Science and Veterinary, established by means of a meticulous analysis of 166,880 scientists determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Animal Science and Veterinary, as many as 3419 scientists were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be examined is set to 20 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Animal Science and Veterinary. The approval factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the given area in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are incorporated into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification methods
Because our main aim is to guarantee that only genuine scientists are included in the ranking we believe that raw data are never meant to be an absolute tool to assess the work of scientists. Because of that we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a scholar’s position in our ranking, the number of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each scholar’s D-index according to metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type open to the research community. A comprehensive explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where top experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
