The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
field of Animal Science and Veterinary was created using data
derived from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. 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
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading researchers from the field of Animal Science and Veterinary, based on a meticulous study of 166,880 scientists identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Animal Science and Veterinary, as many as 40040 scholars were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be examined is set to 20 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary. The inclusion factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific discipline plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scholars are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
Since our leading mission is to guarantee that only actual scholars are listed in our ranking we believe that numbers are never supposed to be an absolute means to evaluate the output of scholars. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a factor contributing to a scholar’s position in the ranking, the number of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is based on every researcher’s D-index with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scholars, companies and politicians around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
