Additional verification practices
As our primary mission is to make sure that only genuine researchers are included in our ranking we realize that raw data are never supposed to be a full tool to evaluate the output of researchers. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a factor impacting a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by every researcher’s D-index using information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the research community. A comprehensive explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our mission is to motivate researchers, businessmen and decision-makers worldwide to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the whole scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
