The 9th edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field
of Electronics and Electrical Engineering was created using data derived from
multiple 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
researcher’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
includes exclusively publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Electronics and Electrical Engineering research
Our best universities ranking is a credible account of leading researchers from the area of Electronics and Electrical Engineering , created using a detailed analysis of 166,880 researchers determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, more than 10355 scholars were investigated.
What is D-index approval threshold for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
The D-index threshold for including a scientist to be evaluated is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The approval factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the specific field of study plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers estimated for each area od study whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
Since our leading mission is to make sure that only actual researchers are listed in Research.com ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be an absolute means to evaluate the work of scholars. 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 factor contributing to a scientist’s position in our ranking, the number of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific area of science. Position in the ranking is established using each scientist’s D-index with the help of data collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scientists, companies and politicians around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
