The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering was created using data
combined from a wide range of 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
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The range of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading researchers from the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, established by means of a meticulous analysis of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, more than 10355 scholars were investigated.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for including a scholar to be considered is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The inclusion criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers assessed for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are added 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 rules
Because our primary aim is to ensure that only credible scholars are mentioned in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a full tool to assess the output of scholars. Because of that we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a metric contributing to a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. 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 accessible to the scientific community. A detailed explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scientists, businessmen and decision-makers around the world to explore where prominent experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
