The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Animal Science and Veterinary was created using data consolidated from
various 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 sum of D-indexes (Discipline H-index) of all ranking
scholar’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
includes exclusively publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Animal Science and Veterinary research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a trustworthy list of leading researchers from the field of Animal Science and Veterinary , based on a meticulous study of 166,880 scientists discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Animal Science and Veterinary, as many as 40040 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be evaluated is set to 20 if most of their publications are in the discipline 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, proportion of the contributions made within the given field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers assessed for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Since our leading mission is to ensure that only actual scholars are listed in the ranking we believe that metrics are never supposed to be a complete measure to evaluate the work of researchers. For that reason we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a metric defining a scholar’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using every scholar’s D-index according to metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A thorough definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
