The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Mathematics relies os data derived from
a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
devising the citation-based metrics were acquired on 21-12-2022.
Position in the ranking is based on a sum of D-indexes (Discipline H-index) of all ranking
scholar’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
takes into account only papers and citation
data for an examined discipline.
The range of our Mathematics research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy account of leading scientists from the field of Mathematics , based on a detailed examination of 166,880 scholars identified from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Mathematics, more than 6262 researchers were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be evaluated is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the field of Mathematics. The approval requirements for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for including best scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists estimated for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of leading scientists are considered into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
Since our leading mission is to guarantee that only genuine scholars are listed in our ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be an absolute measure to evaluate the contributions of scholars. This is why we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a metric contributing to a researcher’s position in our ranking, the amount of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is based on every scientist’s D-index with the help of information collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community. A detailed explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to inspire scholars, companies and decision-makers around the world to explore where leading experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
