The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
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 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
takes into account only 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 trustworthy list of leading scientists from the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering , based on a meticulous examination of 166,880 scientists identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, as many as 10355 scientists were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a scholar to be considered is established at 30 if most 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 scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the selected area 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 scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the list. 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 aim is to guarantee that only genuine scientists are included in Research.com ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a complete tool to assess the output of scientists. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a element contributing to a scholar’s position in the ranking, the number of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each scholar’s D-index using metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A detailed overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire researchers, companies and politicians around the world to investigate where leading experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
