The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering was created using data
consolidated from a wide range of 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
takes into account only publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The range of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a credible list of leading researchers from the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, created using a thorough study of 166,880 scholars identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, over 10355 scholars were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for including a scholar to be considered is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The approval requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the selected field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars assessed for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scholars are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
As our leading aim is to make sure that only genuine scholars are listed in Research.com ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be a full tool to assess the work of scientists. Because of that we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. While it’s not a element contributing to a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is based on every scientist’s D-index with the help of data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A detailed overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to motivate scholars, companies and politicians around the world to explore where top experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
