The focus of our Immunology research’s best universities ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the discipline of Immunology , based on a thorough study of 166,880 scholars identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Immunology, over 8616 researchers were investigated.

What is D-index inclusion threshold for Immunology
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be examined is established at 40 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Immunology. The acceptance requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the selected area as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for listing top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars estimated for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification methods
As our leading mission is to make sure that only credible scholars are listed in our ranking we are aware that raw data are never meant to be a complete means to evaluate the work of scientists. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a metric contributing to a scientist’s position in the ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by every scientist’s D-index according to metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known 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
Our mission is to motivate scholars, businessmen and politicians around the world to investigate where leading experts are heading and to provide an opportunity for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
