Best Ecology and Evolution Scientists in Ireland

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best researchers in the field of Ecology and Evolution was created using data consolidated from multiple 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 scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which includes exclusively publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The scope of our Ecology and Evolution research’s best scientists ranking is a credible lineup of leading scholars from the area of Ecology and Evolution, established by means of a detailed study of 166,880 researchers discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Ecology and Evolution, over 11774 scientists were investigated.

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 most of their publications are in the area of Ecology and Evolution. The acceptance factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the selected area in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists assessed for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification practices
Since our primary goal is to guarantee that only actual scientists are listed in ranking we are aware that metrics are never supposed to be an absolute measure to evaluate the work of researchers. This is why we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor contributing to a researcher’s position in the ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by every scientist’s D-index according to information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind available to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our goal is to inspire researchers, companies and politicians worldwide to explore where leading 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 various countries, or even within research institutions are.
