Best Ecology and Evolution Universities in Canada 2023

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best universities in the field of Ecology and Evolution relies os data derived from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising the citation-based metrics were collected 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 only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline.

The range of our Ecology and Evolution research’s best universities ranking is a credible lineup of leading scholars from the area of Ecology and Evolution , based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 scholars identified from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Ecology and Evolution, over 11774 scientists were examined.

What is D-index approval threshold for Ecology and Evolution
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Ecology and Evolution. The approval factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification methods
Because our primary aim is to guarantee that only genuine researchers are listed in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a complete means to evaluate the work of scientists. Because of that we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each scholar’s D-index using data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A detailed definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our aim is to inspire scientists, businessmen and decision-makers worldwide to examine where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
