Best Molecular Biology Scientists in Netherlands

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best researchers in the discipline of Molecular Biology relies os data consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating 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 includes exclusively papers and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The scope of our Molecular Biology research
Our best scholars ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scientists from the area of Molecular Biology, created using a meticulous examination of 166,880 scientists determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Molecular Biology, as many as 5724 scientists were analysed.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Molecular Biology
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be examined is placed at 40 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Molecular Biology. The approval requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars projected for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading scholars are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Extra verification practices
As our main aim is to ensure that only credible researchers are included in the ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be a complete means to assess the work of scientists. This is why we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. While it’s not a factor contributing to a researcher’s position in ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by every researcher’s D-index using information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our objective is to inspire researchers, entrepreneurs and decision-makers worldwide to explore where top experts are heading and to give a way for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
