The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering is based on data
derived from a wide range of 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
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Our best researchers ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scientists from the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, established by means of a meticulous analysis of 166,880 scholars determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, more than 10355 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index approval threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be considered is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The inclusion requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers assessed for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification practices
Since our primary aim is to make sure that only credible researchers are mentioned in Research.com ranking we believe that numbers are never supposed to be a full means to evaluate the output of scientists. For that reason we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a factor impacting a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is based on every researcher’s D-index according to metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to motivate scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to examine where top experts are heading and to give a way for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
