The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
discipline of Immunology is based on data
combined from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were
acquired 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
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Immunology research
Our best scholars ranking is a reliable account of leading researchers from the area of Immunology, created using a detailed analysis of 166,880 scientists identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Immunology, over 6370 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index approval threshold for Immunology
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be examined is placed at 40 if most of their publications are in the field of Immunology. The inclusion 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 given field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers estimated for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
As our main goal is to guarantee that only genuine researchers are listed in Research.com ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be a complete means to assess the work of scholars. Because of that we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a metric impacting a scholar’s position in the ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by each researcher’s D-index using data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and decision-makers worldwide to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
