The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
arena of Business and Management is based on data
consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating 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
takes into account only papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The range of our Business and Management research
Our best scientists ranking is a reliable lineup of leading researchers from the area of Business and Management, based on a meticulous analysis of 166,880 scholars determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Business and Management, over 7820 scientists were investigated.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be considered is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Business and Management. The acceptance criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the given discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for considering leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists assessed for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
Since our leading mission is to make sure that only genuine scientists are mentioned in the ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be a full tool to evaluate the work of scholars. Because of that we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. While it’s not a metric impacting a scientist’s position in Research.com ranking, the number of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each scholar’s D-index according to metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scholars, companies and decision-makers worldwide to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
