Best Chemistry Scientists in Ireland

The 1st edition of ranking of the best scholars in the field of Chemistry was created using data consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were gathered on 06-12-2021. Position in the ranking is based on a researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which takes into account only publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Chemistry research
Our best scientists ranking is a credible list of leading researchers from the field of Chemistry, created using a thorough study of 166,880 scientists determined from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Chemistry, as many as 35760 scientists were examined.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Chemistry
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be examined is established at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Chemistry. The acceptance criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the selected area as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists estimated for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading scientists are considered into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification methods
As our primary mission is to guarantee that only actual scholars are included in our ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be a full tool to evaluate the output of researchers. This is why we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Although it’s not a element contributing to a scientist’s position in ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each researcher’s D-index according to metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type open to the research community. A detailed overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our mission is to inspire researchers, companies and administrative bodies around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire research community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
