The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena of
Animal Science and Veterinary is based on data combined from
a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating the citation-based metrics were acquired 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 credible account of leading scientists from the area of Animal Science and Veterinary, based on a thorough study of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Animal Science and Veterinary, over 40040 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Animal Science and Veterinary
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be examined is established at 20 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Animal Science and Veterinary. The approval factors for scholars 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 including top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars assessed for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scientists are considered into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
Since our main mission is to guarantee that only genuine researchers are listed in Research.com ranking we believe that raw data are never supposed to be an absolute measure to assess the work of scholars. For that reason we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. While it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in our ranking, the quantity of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected field of study. Position in the ranking is based on every researcher’s D-index with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A detailed explanation of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to motivate scientists, companies and administrative bodies around the world to explore where prominent experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
