The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists 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
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
takes into account only papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Business and Management research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading researchers from the field of Business and Management, established by means of a thorough study of 166,880 scientists discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Business and Management, more than 7820 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for including a scholar to be considered is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Business and Management. The approval criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the selected field of study plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for considering leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers assessed for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading scientists are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
Since our main goal is to ensure that only genuine scientists are listed in our ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be a full means to quantify the output of scholars. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a element contributing to a researcher’s position in the ranking, the amount of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is based on every scholar’s D-index using metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind available to the scientific community. A thorough explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians worldwide to examine where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
