The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Computer Science was created using data
combined from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
gathered on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Computer Science research
Our best researchers ranking is a reliable account of leading scholars from the field of Computer Science, created using a thorough examination of 166,880 scientists identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Computer Science, over 14402 scholars were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Computer Science
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be evaluated is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Computer Science. The approval factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given area 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 assessed for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading scholars are incorporated into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
As our leading aim is to ensure that only credible researchers are mentioned in Research.com ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be a complete measure to evaluate the work of researchers. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a researcher’s position in the ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each scholar’s D-index using metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A detailed overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and decision-makers worldwide to examine where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
