The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the best scientists in the
arena of Plant Science and Agronomy relies os data
derived 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
includes exclusively papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The range of our Plant Science and Agronomy research
Research.com’s best scholars ranking is a reliable lineup of leading scholars from the area of Plant Science and Agronomy, created using a thorough examination of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Plant Science and Agronomy, as many as 2580 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index approval threshold for Plant Science and Agronomy
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be examined is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Plant Science and Agronomy. The approval factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given area 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 overall number of scholars estimated for each scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scientists are considered into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
As our main goal is to ensure that only actual researchers are included in our ranking we believe that metrics are never supposed to be a full means to assess the output of researchers. This is why we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is based on each scholar’s D-index according to information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A detailed explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to motivate researchers, businessmen and politicians around the world to explore where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
