The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
discipline of Neuroscience was created using data
combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising 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
only includes papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The range of our Neuroscience research
Our best scientists ranking is a credible list of leading scientists from the field of Neuroscience, established by means of a meticulous analysis of 166,880 scientists discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Neuroscience, more than 27400 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Neuroscience
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be examined is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Neuroscience. The approval criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the given field of study plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers assessed for each area od study whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading researchers are considered into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification methods
As our main aim is to ensure that only genuine scientists are included in Research.com ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be a full measure to evaluate the output of scientists. This is why we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a metric impacting a scientist’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by every researcher’s D-index with the help of data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A detailed explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and politicians around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
