Best Neuroscience Scientists in South Korea

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best researchers in the discipline of Neuroscience is based on data derived from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were collected on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which only includes papers and citation data for an examined discipline.

The range of our Neuroscience research’s best researchers ranking is a credible account of leading researchers from the discipline of Neuroscience, created using a detailed study of 166,880 scientists discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the area of Neuroscience, more than 27400 scientists were analysed.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Neuroscience
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be evaluated is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Neuroscience. The approval factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists estimated for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification practices
As our main aim is to guarantee that only actual scholars are included in our ranking we are aware that raw data are never supposed to be a full tool to evaluate the output of scientists. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a factor impacting a scientist’s position in ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-index with the help of metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our goal is to inspire scholars, companies and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
