For the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary, as many as 40040 scholars were analysed.

What is D-index approval threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be evaluated is established at 20 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary. The acceptance requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars assessed for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification rules
As our primary aim is to ensure that only genuine scientists are listed in ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be an absolute tool to evaluate the contributions of scholars. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a metric contributing to a scientist’s position in ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is established using every scientist’s D-index with the help of information gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A thorough explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our goal is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies around the world to explore where top experts are heading and to give 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.
