Best Law Scientists in Netherlands

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scientists in the arena of Law was created using data combined 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 only includes publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Law research
Our best researchers ranking is a credible lineup of leading scientists from the field of Law, created using a meticulous study of 166,880 scientists discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Law, more than 1698 researchers were investigated.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Law
The D-index threshold for including a scholar to be evaluated is placed at 20 if most of their publications are in the area of Law. The approval criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists projected for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars are considered into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification practices
Because our primary mission is to make sure that only genuine researchers are listed in ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be an absolute tool to quantify the output of scientists. This is why we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a factor impacting a researcher’s position in ranking, the amount of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by each scientist’s D-index using information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our mission is to motivate researchers, companies and politicians around the world to investigate where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
