The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Mathematics relies os data consolidated 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
researcher’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Mathematics research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a reliable lineup of leading scholars from the field of Mathematics , created using a meticulous study of 166,880 scientists determined from various bibliometric data sources. For the area of Mathematics, as many as 6262 scientists were investigated.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be considered is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the field of Mathematics. The acceptance factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given area as well as the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for considering leading researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scholars projected for each discipline whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars are considered into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Additional verification methods
As our main mission is to guarantee that only actual researchers are listed in Research.com ranking we are aware that metrics are never supposed to be a full measure to evaluate the contributions of researchers. For that reason we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a metric impacting a scientist’s position in the ranking, the quantity of papers published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by every scientist’s D-index using metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A comprehensive overview of our research process can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to investigate where leading experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole scientific community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
