The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Animal Science and Veterinary relies os data derived from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating the citation-based metrics were gathered on 21-12-2022.
Position in the ranking is based on a sum of D-indexes (Discipline H-index) of all ranking
scholar’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Animal Science and Veterinary research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the field of Animal Science and Veterinary , established by means of a meticulous analysis of 166,880 scholars discovered from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Animal Science and Veterinary, more than 40040 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be considered is set to 20 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary. The acceptance criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the selected discipline plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for considering 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 leading researchers are added into the list. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Since our main mission is to guarantee that only genuine researchers are mentioned in the ranking we believe that raw data are never supposed to be a complete means to quantify the output of scientists. Because of that we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. While it’s not a element impacting a scholar’s position in our ranking, the amount of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by every researcher’s D-index with the help of information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scholars, companies and decision-makers worldwide to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
