The focus of our Business and Management research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a reliable list of leading scientists from the field of Business and Management, established by means of a meticulous examination of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Business and Management, more than 7819 researchers were examined.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be considered is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the field of Business and Management. The approval criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the given discipline plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists estimated for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are incorporated into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Extra verification practices
Since our main aim is to guarantee that only actual scholars are included in our ranking we realize that metrics are never supposed to be a complete tool to quantify the work of scholars. This is why we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor impacting a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by each researcher’s D-index using information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our aim is to inspire scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where top experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
