The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Genetics is based on data combined from
a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
devising the citation-based metrics were collected 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 scope of our Genetics research
Our best universities ranking is a reliable account of leading scientists from the area of Genetics , created using a meticulous examination of 166,880 scholars identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Genetics, over 5724 scholars were examined.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Genetics
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be examined is placed at 40 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Genetics. The approval factors 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 researchers. The D-index threshold for listing top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of researchers assessed for each scientific field whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading researchers are considered into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification rules
Because our leading goal is to make sure that only genuine scientists are listed in Research.com ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be an absolute tool to assess the contributions of researchers. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. While it’s not a element impacting a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the number of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by every scholar’s D-index according to metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
