The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering relies os data
combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were
collected 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
data for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Our best scientists ranking is a reliable account of leading scientists from the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 scholars discovered from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, over 10355 scientists were examined.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be examined is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The approval requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the given area plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers projected for each scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading scholars are incorporated into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
Because our main mission is to ensure that only actual scientists are listed in Research.com ranking we believe that numbers are never supposed to be a complete measure to assess the contributions of scientists. Because of that we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a metric defining a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is based on each scholar’s D-index using metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scientists, companies and politicians around the world to explore where prominent experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire research community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
