The scope of our Psychology research

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Psychology
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be examined is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Psychology. The acceptance requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars assessed for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are incorporated into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification methods
Because our primary goal is to guarantee that only genuine scientists are listed in the ranking we believe that metrics are never supposed to be a complete tool to assess the work of researchers. Because of that we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Although it’s not a factor defining a scientist’s position in our ranking, the number of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is based on each scholar’s D-index using data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our objective is to motivate researchers, companies and decision-makers 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 areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
