The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
field of Business and Management relies os data
consolidated from multiple 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
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
takes into account only papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Business and Management research
Our best researchers ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scientists from the field of Business and Management, established by means of a thorough analysis of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Business and Management, more than 7819 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be evaluated is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Business and Management. The acceptance requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars estimated for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading scientists are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
Because our leading aim is to make sure that only genuine scholars are included in our ranking we realize that raw data are never supposed to be an absolute means to quantify the work of scholars. For that reason we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of credible sources. While it’s not a element impacting a researcher’s position in our ranking, the amount of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index according to information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type open to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scientists, businessmen and politicians worldwide to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
