The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field
of Business and Management is based on data consolidated from
multiple 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
scientist's affiliated with a given institution. D-index
includes exclusively papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Business and Management research

What is D-index approval threshold for Business and Management
The D-index threshold for including a scholar to be examined is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Business and Management. The inclusion criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the given discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for listing best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars assessed for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are incorporated into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification practices
Because our primary mission is to ensure that only genuine researchers are mentioned in Research.com ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be a complete tool to evaluate the output of researchers. Because of that we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor defining a scientist’s position in Research.com ranking, the amount of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is based on every scholar’s D-index using data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A detailed overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to motivate scientists, companies and politicians worldwide to explore where top experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
