The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
field of Computer Science relies os data
consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Computer Science research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a reliable account of leading researchers from the discipline of Computer Science, established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 researchers identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Computer Science, more than 14402 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Computer Science
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be evaluated is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Computer Science. The acceptance requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each area od study whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars are added into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification rules
Because our leading mission is to make sure that only credible researchers are included in our ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be a complete means to assess the work of researchers. For that reason we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a element contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is established using every scholar’s D-index according to metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind available to the scientific community. A detailed explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and politicians worldwide to examine where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
