Best Environmental Sciences Scientists in Mexico

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scientists in the discipline of Environmental Sciences is based on data consolidated from a wide range of 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 scholar’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 researchers from the area of Environmental Sciences, based on a meticulous study of 166,880 researchers determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Environmental Sciences, as many as 11258 researchers were examined.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Environmental Sciences
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 discipline of Environmental Sciences. The approval criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the given area plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars assessed for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best researchers are added 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
Because our main goal is to ensure that only genuine scientists are included in our ranking we are aware that raw data are never supposed to be a full means to quantify the work of scholars. This is why we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. While it’s not a element defining a scholar’s position in our ranking, the number of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by every researcher’s D-index using metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our aim is to inspire researchers, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
