The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
arena of Business and Management was created using data
derived from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
collected on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Business and Management research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the field of Business and Management, based on a thorough examination of 166,880 researchers discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Business and Management, as many as 7819 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for including a scholar to be examined is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Business and Management. The inclusion criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the given area in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars assessed for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading researchers are incorporated into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification methods
As our leading aim is to make sure that only actual scholars are included in the ranking we realize that raw data are never meant to be an absolute means to assess the output of scholars. This is why we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a element contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is based on each scholar’s D-index with the help of data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scholars, companies and politicians worldwide to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
