The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Animal Science and Veterinary is based on data derived from
a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating the citation-based metrics were collected on 21-12-2022.
Position in the ranking is based on a sum of D-indexes (Discipline H-index) of all ranking
scientist's affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Animal Science and Veterinary research
Our best universities ranking is a reliable account of leading researchers from the area of Animal Science and Veterinary , based on a thorough study of 166,880 researchers identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Animal Science and Veterinary, over 40040 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be examined is placed at 20 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Animal Science and Veterinary. The acceptance factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific discipline plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars estimated for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification rules
Because our main aim is to guarantee that only credible scientists are included in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be an absolute means to evaluate the work of scholars. For that reason we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a element impacting a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by every researcher’s D-index with the help of information gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to motivate scholars, companies and politicians worldwide to investigate where top experts are heading and to provide a way for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
