The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
arena of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering relies os data
combined from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were
gathered on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The range of our Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scientists from the area of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, established by means of a thorough study of 166,880 scholars determined from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, more than 5741 researchers were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be evaluated is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The inclusion requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the selected field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists projected for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
Since our main aim is to make sure that only credible researchers are listed in the ranking we believe that metrics are never supposed to be a full means to quantify the work of scientists. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor defining a scholar’s position in the ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is established using each researcher’s D-index with the help of metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A comprehensive overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate scholars, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
