Best Genetics Scientists in Italy

The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the discipline of Genetics was created using data derived from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which takes into account only papers and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The range of our Genetics research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a credible account of leading scholars from the discipline of Genetics, based on a detailed analysis of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Genetics, over 5724 scientists were investigated.

What is D-index approval threshold for Genetics
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be evaluated is placed at 40 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Genetics. The approval requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the given discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists projected for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification practices
Since our primary mission is to make sure that only credible scientists are included in our ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be a full tool to quantify the contributions of researchers. For that reason we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a factor impacting 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 implication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is established using each scholar’s D-index with the help of information gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A detailed explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our aim is to inspire scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where prominent experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
