The range of our Psychology research

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Psychology
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be considered is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Psychology. The inclusion criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the given area plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists projected for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading researchers are incorporated into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification methods
As our primary mission is to ensure that only actual scientists are mentioned in our ranking we believe that raw data are never meant to be an absolute means to quantify the contributions of scientists. This is why we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a metric defining a scientist’s position in our ranking, the number of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-index according to metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A thorough explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our mission is to inspire scientists, companies and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where top experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
