The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Engineering and Technology was created using data combined from
multiple data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating 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
takes into account only publications and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Engineering and Technology research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy list of leading scientists from the discipline of Engineering and Technology , created using a detailed analysis of 166,880 scientists identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Engineering and Technology, as many as 27940 scientists were analysed.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Engineering and Technology
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be examined is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Engineering and Technology. The inclusion criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists assessed for each area od study whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading scholars are considered into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
Because our primary goal is to ensure that only actual researchers are included in the ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be a full measure to assess the contributions of scholars. Because of that we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. Although it’s not a element defining a scientist’s position in the ranking, the number of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific discipline. Position in the ranking is based on every scientist’s D-index using information gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind available to the research community. A detailed overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our mission is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians worldwide to explore where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
