What is D-index acceptance threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be examined is established at 20 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Animal Science and Veterinary. The inclusion factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars estimated for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the list.

Additional verification practices
Since our leading aim is to make sure that only actual researchers are mentioned in our ranking we are aware that numbers are never supposed to be a full means to quantify the work of scientists. Because of that we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Although it’s not a factor contributing to a researcher’s position in the ranking, the quantity of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is established using each scientist’s D-index with the help of data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A detailed overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies worldwide to explore where leading experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
