The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field
of Electronics and Electrical Engineering is based on data combined from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
evaluating 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
researcher’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering , based on a thorough examination of 166,880 researchers determined from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 scholars were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be examined is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The inclusion criteria for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the selected field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars estimated for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are added into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification practices
Because our leading aim is to make sure that only genuine researchers are included in the ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be an absolute tool to quantify the contributions of scientists. Because of that we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected discipline. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index with the help of information 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 process can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scientists, companies and decision-makers worldwide to explore where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
