Best Earth Science Scientists in Ireland

The 1st edition of ranking of the best scholars in the discipline of Earth Science relies os data combined from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were collected on 06-12-2021. 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 Earth Science research’s best scientists ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scientists from the area of Earth Science, established by means of a meticulous study of 166,880 researchers identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Earth Science, more than 6742 scholars were examined.

What is D-index approval threshold for Earth 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 Earth Science. The inclusion requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the given field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers assessed for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification methods
Because our main goal is to ensure that only actual scientists are listed in ranking we realize that metrics are never supposed to be a complete measure to evaluate the contributions of researchers. Because of that we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a element impacting a scientist’s position in ranking, the number of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should constitute a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is based on every researcher’s D-index using metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A thorough explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our objective is to inspire researchers, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to explore where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
