The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Biology and Biochemistry is based on data derived from
multiple data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
evaluating the citation-based metrics were collected on 06-12-2021.
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
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Biology and Biochemistry research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scholars from the area of Biology and Biochemistry , established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 scientists determined from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Biology and Biochemistry, more than 23135 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Biology and Biochemistry
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be evaluated is set to 40 if most of their publications are in the field of Biology and Biochemistry. The inclusion factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the given area as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists estimated for each scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
Since our leading goal is to make sure that only credible researchers are mentioned in the ranking we believe that raw data are never supposed to be an absolute means to evaluate the output of researchers. Because of that we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a metric contributing to a scientist’s position in our ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should form 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 gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A comprehensive definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and politicians around the world to explore where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
