Best Computer Science Scientists in Saudi Arabia

The 9th edition of ranking of the best researchers in the arena of Computer Science was created using data consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were collected on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which includes exclusively publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The scope of our Computer Science research
Our best scholars ranking is a trustworthy list of leading scholars from the field of Computer Science, based on a detailed analysis of 166,880 researchers discovered from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Computer Science, more than 14402 scholars were analysed.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Computer Science
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be considered is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Computer Science. The approval requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the specific field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for considering top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists projected for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification rules
Since our primary mission is to make sure that only actual scientists are included in ranking we believe that metrics are never supposed to be a complete measure to assess the work of scientists. For that reason we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. While it’s not a metric defining a scholar’s position in ranking, the quantity of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using every scholar’s D-index according to information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our objective is to inspire researchers, businessmen and politicians around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
