The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Ecology and Evolution is based on data consolidated from
multiple data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating the citation-based metrics were acquired 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
includes exclusively publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Ecology and Evolution research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a trustworthy list of leading scientists from the discipline of Ecology and Evolution , created using a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers discovered from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Ecology and Evolution, over 11774 scholars were investigated.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Ecology and Evolution
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be considered is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Ecology and Evolution. The inclusion criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given discipline 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 overall number of scientists assessed for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scholars 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 practices
As our main aim is to guarantee that only genuine scholars are mentioned in our ranking we are aware that raw data are never supposed to be a full tool to evaluate the work of researchers. Because of that we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Even though it’s not a factor impacting a scholar’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index using data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind available to the research community. A thorough explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate researchers, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to explore where prominent 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.
