Best Molecular Biology Scientists in Italy

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best scientists in the field of Molecular Biology relies os data combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were collected 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 data for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Molecular Biology research
Our best scientists ranking is a reliable account of leading researchers from the area of Molecular Biology, established by means of a meticulous examination of 166,880 researchers discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Molecular Biology, over 5724 scientists were investigated.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Molecular Biology
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be considered is placed at 40 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Molecular Biology. The inclusion requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for listing top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists estimated for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars are incorporated into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification methods
Since our leading aim is to ensure that only actual scientists are mentioned in our ranking we believe that raw data are never meant to be a full means to quantify the output of scholars. For that reason we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a element contributing to a scientist’s position in our ranking, the amount of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by each scientist’s D-index with the help of data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A thorough overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our objective is to inspire researchers, companies and decision-makers worldwide to investigate where top experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
