The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Electronics and Electrical Engineering relies os data consolidated from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
devising the citation-based metrics were gathered 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
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Our best universities ranking is a reliable list of leading scholars from the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering , created using a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, over 10355 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be considered is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The approval requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the specific discipline as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars estimated for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of best researchers are incorporated into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification methods
Because our main mission is to guarantee that only actual scientists are included in our ranking we realize that numbers are never meant to be an absolute means to assess the output of researchers. Because of that we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of credible sources. While it’s not a metric defining a researcher’s position in the ranking, the quantity of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is based on every scientist’s D-index using metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind available to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scientists, companies and administrative bodies worldwide to explore where top experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
