Best Ecology and Evolution Scientists in Argentina

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scholars in the discipline of Ecology and Evolution relies os data derived from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising 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 takes into account only publications and citation values for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Ecology and Evolution research
Our best researchers ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scholars from the discipline of Ecology and Evolution, established by means of a detailed study of 166,880 scientists identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Ecology and Evolution, more than 11774 scientists were examined.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Ecology and Evolution
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be considered is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Ecology and Evolution. The approval factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific area plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scholars are incorporated into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Extra verification methods
Since our primary aim is to make sure that only genuine scholars are mentioned in ranking we believe that numbers are never supposed to be an absolute tool to evaluate the output of researchers. Because of that we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a metric contributing to a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each scientist’s D-index with the help of information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type open to the scientific community. A thorough definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our mission is to inspire researchers, companies and decision-makers around the world to investigate where leading experts are heading and to offer an opportunity 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.
