The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
discipline of Neuroscience relies os data
consolidated from multiple 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
only includes publications and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Neuroscience research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the discipline of Neuroscience, based on a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers discovered from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Neuroscience, more than 27400 researchers were examined.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Neuroscience
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be examined is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Neuroscience. The approval factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the selected discipline in addition to 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 scientists projected for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification methods
Because our leading aim is to make sure that only genuine scholars are listed in Research.com ranking we realize that metrics are never supposed to be an absolute means to assess the output of scientists. Because of that we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a factor defining a researcher’s position in our ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is based on every scholar’s D-index using metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate researchers, businessmen and politicians worldwide to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to give a way for the whole scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
