The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering relies os data
combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising 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
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scientists from the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, established by means of a meticulous study of 166,880 scholars discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 scientists were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be examined is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline 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 contributions made within the selected field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for listing leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars projected for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification rules
Because our primary goal is to make sure that only credible scholars are mentioned in Research.com ranking we believe that raw data are never meant to be a complete measure to assess the output of researchers. For that reason we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor defining a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the number of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each scholar’s D-index using metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A thorough overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scholars, companies and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
