The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
field of Genetics was created using data
derived from various 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
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
takes into account only papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Genetics research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scholars from the field of Genetics, based on a detailed analysis of 166,880 scientists determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Genetics, as many as 5724 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Genetics
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be evaluated is established at 40 if most of their publications are in the field of Genetics. The approval factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars estimated for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading researchers are considered into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
As our primary mission is to ensure that only genuine scholars are included in our ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be an absolute measure to quantify the output of scholars. Because of that we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by each scholar’s D-index with the help of information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A thorough explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scientists, businessmen and decision-makers around the world to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
