What is D-index approval threshold for Law and Political Science
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be considered is set to 20 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Law and Political Science. The acceptance criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the specific area in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists estimated for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification methods
Because our leading aim is to ensure that only genuine scholars are mentioned in Research.com ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be a full tool to evaluate the contributions of scientists. For that reason we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a factor contributing to a researcher’s position in our ranking, the amount of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is established using each researcher’s D-index using information gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire scientists, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to examine where leading experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
