The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
arena of Business and Management was created using data
consolidated from a wide range of 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
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Business and Management research
Our best scientists ranking is a trustworthy account of leading researchers from the area of Business and Management, based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 researchers identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Business and Management, over 7820 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be evaluated is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Business and Management. The approval criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers projected for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are added into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
As our main goal is to guarantee that only genuine researchers are mentioned in the ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a full means to assess the output of scholars. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a factor contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each scholar’s D-index with the help of metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to motivate researchers, companies and politicians worldwide to investigate where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
