The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field
of Chemistry relies os data consolidated from
a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating the citation-based metrics were gathered 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
only includes publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Chemistry research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scientists from the area of Chemistry , established by means of a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Chemistry, over 35760 researchers were investigated.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Chemistry
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be considered is set to 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Chemistry. The acceptance criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists estimated for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Since our main aim is to guarantee that only actual researchers are included in our ranking we believe that numbers are never supposed to be a complete measure to assess the work of researchers. For that reason we manually inspect every 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 Research.com ranking, the number of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by every scholar’s D-index with the help of information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to motivate scientists, companies and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
