The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Mathematics was created using data
consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
collected on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Mathematics research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a reliable list of leading scholars from the area of Mathematics, established by means of a meticulous analysis of 166,880 scholars discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the area of Mathematics, more than 6262 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be examined is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Mathematics. The inclusion requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the selected area in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers projected for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification practices
Because our primary mission is to ensure that only actual scientists are included in our ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be an absolute means to assess the work of scientists. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a element contributing to a scientist’s position in the ranking, the quantity of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by each researcher’s D-index with the help of data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate researchers, companies and decision-makers around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
