The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Chemistry was created using data combined from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
evaluating 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
researcher’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Chemistry research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the discipline of Chemistry , established by means of a thorough analysis of 166,880 researchers identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Chemistry, more than 43178 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Chemistry
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is placed at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Chemistry. The inclusion factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars assessed for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best researchers are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
Because our main mission is to guarantee that only actual scholars are included in our ranking we are aware that raw data are never supposed to be a complete means to assess the output of scholars. This is why we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by every scholar’s D-index using data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind available to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where leading 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 different countries, or even within research institutions are.
