Best Materials Science Scientists in Malaysia

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best researchers in the arena of Materials Science is based on data consolidated from a wide range of 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 researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which includes exclusively papers and citation values for an examined discipline.

The range of our Materials Science research
Our best researchers ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scholars from the discipline of Materials Science, established by means of a thorough analysis of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Materials Science, over 17130 scholars were investigated.

What is D-index approval threshold for Materials Science
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be examined is set to 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Materials Science. The approval criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific area plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists assessed for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading scholars are considered into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification rules
Since our leading aim is to guarantee that only genuine scholars are listed in our ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be an absolute means to assess the output of scholars. This is why we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of credible sources. While it’s not a metric contributing to a scientist’s position in ranking, the quantity of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using each researcher’s D-index with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A detailed explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our objective is to inspire researchers, companies and politicians worldwide to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
