The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the

derived from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were

What is D-index approval threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be evaluated is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Business and Management. The inclusion factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific field of study plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for considering best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars projected for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are incorporated into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
Since our primary mission is to make sure that only actual scholars are listed in the ranking we realize that raw data are never supposed to be a full measure to quantify the work of researchers. Because of that we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a metric impacting a scientist’s position in the ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by every scientist’s D-index according to metrics gathered 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 goal is to inspire scientists, businessmen and decision-makers worldwide to examine where leading experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the whole scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
