The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
discipline of Biology and Biochemistry relies os data
consolidated from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were
collected on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Biology and Biochemistry research
Our best researchers ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the area of Biology and Biochemistry, based on a meticulous analysis of 166,880 scientists discovered from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Biology and Biochemistry, as many as 67599 scientists were analysed.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Biology and Biochemistry
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be examined is established at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Biology and Biochemistry. The acceptance criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the selected area as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists assessed for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. We expect 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 scientists are mentioned in our ranking we are aware that numbers are never supposed to be a complete means to quantify the work of researchers. Because of that we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index using metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire scholars, businessmen and decision-makers around the world to explore where prominent experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
