The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
arena of Business and Management was created using data
combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Business and Management research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a reliable account of leading scholars from the area of Business and Management, created using a thorough examination of 166,880 scientists identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Business and Management, as many as 7820 scholars were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be considered is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Business and Management. The inclusion criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the given area as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading 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.
Extra verification methods
Because our main aim is to make sure that only credible researchers are listed in the ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be a complete means to quantify the output of scholars. This is why we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a metric contributing to a scholar’s position in the ranking, the quantity of documents published in prominent 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 with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A comprehensive overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where leading 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.
