The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field
of Genetics and Molecular Biology relies os data derived from
a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
devising the citation-based metrics were collected on 06-12-2021.
Position in the ranking is based on a sum of D-indexes (Discipline H-index) of all ranking
scientist's affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes papers and citation
values for an examined discipline.
The range of our Genetics and Molecular Biology research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a credible lineup of leading scholars from the area of Genetics and Molecular Biology , based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 scholars identified from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Genetics and Molecular Biology, over 10151 scientists were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Genetics and Molecular Biology
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is established at 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Genetics and Molecular Biology. The approval factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific field of study in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best researchers are considered into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification methods
Because our primary aim is to guarantee that only genuine researchers are listed in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a complete means to evaluate the work of scientists. Because of that we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a element defining a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is established using each scholar’s D-index using data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A detailed definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to inspire scientists, businessmen and decision-makers worldwide to examine where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
