Best Psychology Scientists in Taiwan

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best researchers in the arena of Psychology is based on data derived 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 publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Psychology research’s best scientists ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the area of Psychology, based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Psychology, more than 15018 scientists were examined.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Psychology
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be examined is set to 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Psychology. The inclusion factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific area as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for listing leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists projected for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification methods
Since our primary goal is to ensure that only credible scholars are mentioned in our ranking we believe that raw data are never supposed to be an absolute measure to evaluate the work of researchers. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a factor impacting a researcher’s position in the ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is established using every scholar’s D-index using data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our mission is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and decision-makers worldwide to explore where prominent experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
