The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scholars in the
discipline of Mathematics was created using data
combined from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were
acquired on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Mathematics research
Our best researchers ranking is a credible lineup of leading researchers from the discipline of Mathematics, created using a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Mathematics, as many as 6262 scientists were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be considered is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Mathematics. The inclusion requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the specific field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scholars are considered into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Since our leading aim is to guarantee that only credible researchers are mentioned in the ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be a full means to quantify the work of scientists. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in the ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by each scientist’s D-index according to data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
