The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering is based on data
combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
takes into account only papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a credible account of leading scientists from the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 scientists determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index approval threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be considered is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The acceptance criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the given field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for listing best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers estimated for each area od study whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading scientists are considered into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification methods
Since our primary aim is to ensure that only actual researchers are listed in Research.com ranking we are aware that metrics are never supposed to be a complete means to evaluate the output of scholars. This is why we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a element defining a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index using data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A thorough definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to motivate researchers, businessmen and decision-makers around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to provide a way for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
