Best Environmental Sciences Scientists in Ireland

The 1st edition of ranking of the best researchers in the arena of Environmental Sciences is based on data consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were collected on 06-12-2021. 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 focus of our Environmental Sciences research’s best scientists ranking is a credible account of leading scholars from the area of Environmental Sciences, created using a meticulous study of 166,880 scientists determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Environmental Sciences, more than 9206 scientists were investigated.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Environmental Sciences
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be evaluated is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Environmental Sciences. The approval criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification methods
Because our primary aim is to guarantee that only actual researchers are listed in the ranking we realize that numbers are never meant to be a complete measure to assess the contributions of scholars. For that reason we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a element impacting a scientist’s position in ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index according to information gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A detailed overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our goal is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where top experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
