The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
arena of Computer Science is based on data
combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising 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
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Computer Science research
Research.com’s best researchers ranking is a credible account of leading scholars from the discipline of Computer Science, based on a thorough examination of 166,880 researchers discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Computer Science, over 14402 scholars were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Computer Science
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Computer Science. The acceptance criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists estimated for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are considered into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
As our primary mission is to ensure that only credible scientists are listed in our ranking we are aware that metrics are never supposed to be a full means 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 credible sources. Even though it’s not a factor defining a scientist’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index with the help of data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to motivate scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies worldwide to explore where prominent experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
