The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field
of Electronics and Electrical Engineering relies os data combined 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
takes into account only publications and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scientists from the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering , based on a thorough study of 166,880 researchers identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 scientists were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be considered is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The approval criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars assessed for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are incorporated into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification practices
Since our main mission is to make sure that only genuine scientists are included in our ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be a full measure to assess the output of scholars. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a element defining a scientist’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is based on every scientist’s D-index using metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A comprehensive definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate scholars, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies worldwide to explore where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
