The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
arena of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is based on data
combined from various 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
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
includes exclusively publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering research
Our best scholars ranking is a reliable account of leading researchers from the area of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, established by means of a thorough study of 166,880 researchers identified from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, over 5741 scientists were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The inclusion factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers 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 listing top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers estimated for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
As our primary goal is to guarantee that only credible scholars are listed in our ranking we are aware that numbers are never supposed to be an absolute measure to quantify the contributions of scholars. Because of that we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. While it’s not a element defining a scientist’s position in our ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-index using metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire researchers, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to explore where prominent experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire research community to discover who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
