The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
field of Biology and Biochemistry relies os data
derived from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
gathered 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
data for an examined discipline.
The range of our Biology and Biochemistry research
Our best researchers ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scholars from the area of Biology and Biochemistry, created using a detailed examination of 166,880 scholars discovered from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Biology and Biochemistry, more than 67599 scholars were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Biology and Biochemistry
The D-index threshold for including a scholar to be examined is placed at 40 if most of their publications are in the field of Biology and Biochemistry. The approval factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars assessed for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are considered into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
Since our main mission is to make sure that only credible researchers are included in our ranking we are aware that numbers are never supposed to be a full tool to assess the work of scientists. This is why we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a element contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the number of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is based on every scholar’s D-index with the help of metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
