Best Genetics Scientists in Germany

The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the field of Genetics relies os data derived from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating 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 range of our Genetics research
Research.com’s best scientists ranking is a credible account of leading scholars from the area of Genetics, based on a thorough study of 166,880 scientists determined from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Genetics, more than 5724 scholars were examined.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Genetics
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be evaluated is established at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Genetics. The acceptance requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers projected for each scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best researchers are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification practices
As our leading goal is to guarantee that only genuine scientists are listed in the ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be an absolute measure to assess the work of scientists. This is why we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. While it’s not a element defining a scientist’s position in our ranking, the amount of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each scientist’s D-index according to data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this type open to the research community. A thorough definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our aim is to motivate researchers, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to explore where prominent experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
