The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
field of Engineering and Technology is based on data
combined 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
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Engineering and Technology research
Our best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading researchers from the field of Engineering and Technology, created using a meticulous examination of 166,880 scholars determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Engineering and Technology, over 27940 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Engineering and Technology
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be evaluated is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Engineering and Technology. The acceptance factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected discipline 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 estimated for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
As our main mission is to ensure that only genuine researchers are included in Research.com ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be an absolute means to evaluate the work of scholars. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a element contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the number of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is established using each researcher’s D-index using data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scholars, businessmen and politicians worldwide to investigate where top experts are heading and to give a way for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
