The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
arena of Immunology relies os data
consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating 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 papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The range of our Immunology research
Research.com’s best researchers ranking is a reliable lineup of leading researchers from the discipline of Immunology, created using a detailed study of 166,880 scientists identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Immunology, over 8616 scientists were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Immunology
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be considered is established 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 researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given area as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists assessed for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best researchers are added into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Since our leading goal is to guarantee that only actual scientists are mentioned in the ranking we realize that numbers are never meant to be a full means to assess the work of scientists. For that reason we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each scholar’s D-index according to information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to motivate researchers, entrepreneurs and decision-makers worldwide to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
