Best Materials Science Universities in Singapore 2022

The 1st edition of ranking of the best universities in the field of Materials Science is based on data consolidated from multiple data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were gathered 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 scope of our Materials Science research
Our best universities ranking is a credible list of leading scientists from the area of Materials Science , created using a thorough study of 166,880 scholars discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Materials Science, more than 11166 researchers were examined.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Materials Science
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be considered is set to 40 if most of their publications are in the field of Materials Science. The acceptance factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given field of study plus the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of leading scholars are considered into the ranking. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification practices
Because our primary mission is to make sure that only genuine scholars are mentioned in our ranking we realize that numbers are never supposed to be a full tool to evaluate the work of scholars. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of reliable sources. While it’s not a factor impacting a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is established using every scientist’s D-index with the help of information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this type open to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our goal is to inspire scholars, businessmen and administrative bodies around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
