The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Ecology and Evolution relies os data combined from
various 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
scholar’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
takes into account only publications and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Ecology and Evolution research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scientists from the discipline of Ecology and Evolution , created using a thorough analysis of 166,880 scientists determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Ecology and Evolution, more than 11774 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Ecology and Evolution
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be examined is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the field of Ecology and Evolution. The approval factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the given area as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for listing leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists assessed for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars 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 practices
Because our main goal is to ensure that only actual researchers are mentioned in the ranking we believe that raw data are never supposed to be a complete means to quantify the work of scholars. This is why we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a researcher’s position in our ranking, the quantity of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is based on each researcher’s D-index according to data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scholars, businessmen and decision-makers around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire research community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
