The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
arena of Mathematics is based on data
consolidated from multiple 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 scope of our Mathematics research
Our best scientists ranking is a trustworthy list of leading scholars from the area of Mathematics, based on a thorough study of 166,880 researchers identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Mathematics, as many as 6262 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index approval threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be examined is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Mathematics. The acceptance criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers projected for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best researchers are considered 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 main aim is to ensure that only actual researchers are mentioned in Research.com ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be a complete means to assess the work of researchers. This is why we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a metric defining a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each scientist’s D-index with the help of metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type open to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians worldwide to examine where prominent experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
