The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
arena of Computer Science is based on data
derived from a wide range of 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
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
takes into account only publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Computer Science research
Research.com’s best researchers ranking is a credible lineup of leading researchers from the field of Computer Science, established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 scientists determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Computer Science, more than 14402 scientists were analysed.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Computer Science
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be evaluated is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Computer Science. The inclusion requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the selected field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers projected for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are incorporated into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
Since our primary aim is to guarantee that only credible scientists are included in Research.com ranking we believe that raw data are never meant to be an absolute means to assess the contributions of scientists. This is why we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a element impacting a scientist’s position in the ranking, the quantity of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each researcher’s D-index according to data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A thorough definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scientists, businessmen and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
