The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
field of Genetics and Molecular Biology was created using data
consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
gathered on 06-12-2021. Position in the ranking is based on a
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Genetics and Molecular Biology research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scholars from the discipline of Genetics and Molecular Biology, created using a meticulous analysis of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Genetics and Molecular Biology, over 10151 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Genetics and Molecular Biology
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be examined is placed at 40 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Genetics and Molecular Biology. The inclusion criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers assessed for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
Because our main goal is to ensure that only genuine researchers are mentioned in Research.com ranking we believe that raw data are never meant to be a full measure to quantify the output of researchers. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Although it’s not a metric contributing to a scientist’s position in our ranking, the number of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is based on every researcher’s D-index with the help of data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scholars, companies and politicians around the world to investigate where top experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
