Best Microbiology Scientists in Israel

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scholars in the field of Microbiology relies os data consolidated from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were gathered 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 focus of our Microbiology research’s best scholars ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scientists from the area of Microbiology, based on a meticulous analysis of 166,880 researchers determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Microbiology, over 43737 scholars were investigated.

What is D-index approval threshold for Microbiology
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be examined is set to 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Microbiology. The approval requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given area plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification rules
As our leading aim is to make sure that only genuine scholars are mentioned in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a complete tool to evaluate the contributions of scientists. For that reason we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a factor defining a researcher’s position in ranking, the quantity of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is based on 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 accessible to the research community. A detailed explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our mission is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to investigate where top experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
