Best Plant Science and Agronomy Scientists in Sweden

The 1st edition of ranking of the best researchers in the discipline of Plant Science and Agronomy is based on data consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were acquired on 06-12-2021. Position in the ranking is based on a scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which takes into account only publications and citation data for an examined discipline.

The scope of our Plant Science and Agronomy research
Our best scientists ranking is a trustworthy list of leading researchers from the discipline of Plant Science and Agronomy, created using a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Plant Science and Agronomy, more than 2580 scientists were analysed.

What is D-index approval threshold for Plant Science and Agronomy
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be examined is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Plant Science and Agronomy. The acceptance requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific area in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers estimated for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scholars are incorporated into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Extra verification practices
As our leading aim is to make sure that only genuine scholars are listed in ranking we realize that numbers are never supposed to be an absolute measure 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 credible sources. Even though it’s not a factor defining a scientist’s position in ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each scholar’s D-index with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A detailed definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our goal is to motivate scholars, companies and administrative bodies worldwide to explore where top experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
