Best Physics Scientists in Sweden

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best researchers in the arena of Physics relies os data consolidated from a wide range of 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 includes exclusively papers and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Physics research
Our best scientists ranking is a trustworthy list of leading researchers from the area of Physics, created using a meticulous analysis of 166,880 researchers discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the area of Physics, as many as 51178 researchers were investigated.

What is D-index approval threshold for Physics
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be evaluated is placed at 70 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Physics. 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 discipline as well as 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 total number of scientists projected for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are added into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Extra verification practices
Since our primary mission is to guarantee that only credible scientists are included in the ranking we believe that raw data are never meant to be an absolute measure to evaluate the output of researchers. This is why we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a element impacting a scientist’s position in our ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-index according to metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A detailed overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our aim is to inspire scientists, businessmen and decision-makers worldwide to investigate where leading experts are heading and to give a way for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
