The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
field of Animal Science and Veterinary was created using data
derived from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Animal Science and Veterinary research
Our best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading researchers from the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary, created using a detailed examination of 166,880 scientists determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary, over 40040 scientists were examined.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be considered is established at 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 researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the given field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers projected for each scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading researchers are incorporated into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification methods
Since our primary mission is to ensure that only genuine researchers are mentioned in our ranking we are aware that numbers are never meant to be an absolute tool to assess the output of scholars. Because of that we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a factor defining a researcher’s position in our ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by every scholar’s D-index using information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A thorough explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire researchers, entrepreneurs and decision-makers worldwide to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
