The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
arena of Engineering and Technology is based on data
consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
gathered on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Engineering and Technology research
Our best researchers ranking is a credible lineup of leading scientists from the area of Engineering and Technology, established by means of a thorough study of 166,880 scholars discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Engineering and Technology, as many as 27940 scientists were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Engineering and Technology
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be examined is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Engineering and Technology. The inclusion factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars estimated for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
As our primary aim is to guarantee that only actual researchers are listed in Research.com ranking we realize that raw data are never supposed to be a complete tool to quantify the work of researchers. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a metric contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using each scientist’s D-index with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A comprehensive overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate scientists, companies and politicians around the world to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
