Best Animal Science and Veterinary Scientists in New Zealand

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scholars in the arena of Animal Science and Veterinary is based on data derived from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which takes into account only publications and citation data for an examined discipline.

The scope of our Animal Science and Veterinary research’s best researchers ranking is a reliable lineup of leading scientists from the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary, based on a meticulous study of 166,880 researchers determined from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Animal Science and Veterinary, over 40040 scientists were examined.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be evaluated is established at 20 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Animal Science and Veterinary. The inclusion requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each area od study whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification practices
Because our main goal is to guarantee that only genuine scientists are mentioned in ranking we are aware that numbers are never supposed to be an absolute tool to evaluate the output of scientists. For that reason we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Although it’s not a factor contributing to a scholar’s position in ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is based on every researcher’s D-index with the help of data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A detailed definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our goal is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
