The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Immunology is based on data combined from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
evaluating 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
scientist's affiliated with a given institution. D-index
includes exclusively publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Immunology research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy list of leading scholars from the area of Immunology , based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 scientists identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Immunology, as many as 8616 researchers were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Immunology
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be examined is set to 40 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Immunology. The approval factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the specific field of study as well as 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 scientists assessed for each area od study whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading 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 practices
As our main goal is to guarantee that only genuine scholars are listed in our ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a complete measure to quantify the work of researchers. This is why we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of credible sources. While it’s not a element contributing to a scholar’s position in our ranking, the quantity of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by each scientist’s D-index according to data gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scientists, companies and administrative bodies around the world to investigate where top experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
