The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
arena of Electronics and Electrical Engineering was created using data
consolidated from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
takes into account only papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a trustworthy list of leading scientists from the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, based on a thorough study of 166,880 researchers determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 scientists were investigated.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be considered is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The acceptance requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers estimated for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification methods
Since our primary mission is to guarantee that only genuine researchers are mentioned in Research.com ranking we realize that numbers are never meant to be an absolute tool to assess the contributions of researchers. For that reason we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor impacting a scientist’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by each scholar’s D-index according to information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
