The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Biology and Biochemistry is based on data
combined from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
gathered on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Biology and Biochemistry research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a reliable account of leading researchers from the field of Biology and Biochemistry, based on a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Biology and Biochemistry, more than 67599 scientists were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Biology and Biochemistry
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be evaluated is placed at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Biology and Biochemistry. The acceptance criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the given discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for listing leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers projected for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading researchers are incorporated into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification methods
As our primary goal is to guarantee that only credible researchers are included in our ranking we are aware that metrics are never supposed to be an absolute tool to evaluate the output of researchers. Because of that we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a scientist’s position in the ranking, the amount of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is based on every scientist’s D-index with the help of data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where leading experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
