Best Chemistry Universities in Portugal 2022

The 1st edition of ranking of the best universities in the arena of Chemistry was created using data combined from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating 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 takes into account only publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The range of our Chemistry research’s best universities ranking is a trustworthy account of leading researchers from the field of Chemistry , established by means of a detailed study of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Chemistry, as many as 35760 researchers were analysed.

What is D-index approval threshold for Chemistry
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be examined is placed at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Chemistry. The inclusion requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists projected 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 researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification methods
As our main mission is to ensure that only genuine scientists are included in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a full means to evaluate the contributions of researchers. Because of that we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of credible sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a scientist’s position in the ranking, the number of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by every researcher’s D-index using information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A detailed definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our objective is to inspire researchers, entrepreneurs and politicians around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
