Best Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Scientists in Turkey

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scholars in the arena of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering was created using data derived 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 scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which only includes publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering research
Our best scientists ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scientists from the area of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, established by means of a meticulous study of 166,880 researchers identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, over 5741 scientists were investigated.

What is D-index approval threshold for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be examined is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The acceptance factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected area as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars projected for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Extra verification rules
As our primary mission is to make sure that only genuine scientists are listed in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be an absolute measure to evaluate the work of scientists. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor impacting a scholar’s position in our ranking, the quantity of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each researcher’s D-index according to metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A detailed overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our mission is to motivate researchers, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where leading experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
