The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
arena of Electronics and Electrical Engineering relies os data
derived from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising 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 takes into account only
publications and citation data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Research.com’s best researchers ranking is a credible account of leading scholars from the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 scientists identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 scientists were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be evaluated is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The approval criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific area in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists assessed for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best researchers are incorporated into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Since our leading goal is to ensure that only actual researchers are listed in the ranking we believe that metrics are never supposed to be a complete tool to quantify the output of researchers. Because of that we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a element defining a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each researcher’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 detailed explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scholars, companies and decision-makers worldwide to explore where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the entire research community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
