The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
field of Computer Science was created using data
derived from a wide range of 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
includes exclusively papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Computer Science research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a credible list of leading researchers from the area of Computer Science, established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Computer Science, over 14402 researchers were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Computer Science
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be evaluated is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Computer Science. The acceptance requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers projected for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
Since our main goal is to guarantee that only credible scholars are included in our ranking we believe that numbers are never supposed to be an absolute tool to evaluate the work of scholars. This is why we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a factor impacting a scientist’s position in Research.com ranking, the number of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is based on every scholar’s D-index according to data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to examine where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
