The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering is based on data
consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating 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
only includes publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Our best scientists ranking is a reliable list of leading scientists from the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, created using a thorough examination of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 scholars were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
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 Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The inclusion criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific area plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading researchers are incorporated into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
Because our main goal is to guarantee that only actual researchers are mentioned in our ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be a complete tool to quantify the output of scholars. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a factor contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each scholar’s D-index according to metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this type open to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scholars, businessmen and politicians worldwide to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
