The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
arena of Engineering and Technology relies os data
derived from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
gathered 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
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Engineering and Technology research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a reliable lineup of leading researchers from the discipline of Engineering and Technology, based on a detailed analysis of 166,880 researchers discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Engineering and Technology, over 27940 scientists were examined.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Engineering and Technology
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be examined is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the field of Engineering and Technology. The approval criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers assessed for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
Since our leading goal is to ensure that only genuine scholars are included in the ranking we are aware that numbers are never meant to be a complete means to quantify the contributions of scholars. This is why we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. While it’s not a metric impacting a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should constitute a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using each scientist’s D-index according to metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire researchers, companies and decision-makers around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire research community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
