Best Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Scientists in Switzerland

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scholars in the arena of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering relies os data combined from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were gathered on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which takes into account only publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering research
Our best scientists ranking is a credible account of leading researchers from the discipline of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, established by means of a meticulous study of 166,880 scientists discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the area of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, over 5741 scientists were examined.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be considered is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the field of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The acceptance requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific area plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists assessed for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification rules
As our main mission is to ensure that only genuine researchers are included in the ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be an absolute measure to evaluate the work of researchers. This is why we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. While it’s not a metric contributing to a researcher’s position in the ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index using data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy 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 goal
Our goal is to motivate scholars, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies worldwide to investigate where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
