The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
arena of Genetics is based on data
derived from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Genetics research
Research.com’s best researchers ranking is a credible account of leading researchers from the area of Genetics, based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 researchers discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Genetics, as many as 5724 researchers were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Genetics
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is placed at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Genetics. The acceptance factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists assessed for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are incorporated into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification practices
Because our primary mission is to ensure that only genuine scholars are mentioned in Research.com ranking we realize that numbers are never meant to be a complete tool to evaluate the work of scholars. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Although it’s not a metric contributing to a researcher’s position in the ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is based on every scientist’s D-index according to metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate scholars, businessmen and politicians around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to give a way for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
