The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Mathematics was created using data derived from
multiple data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
evaluating 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
researcher’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The range of our Mathematics research
Research.com’s best universities ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scientists from the discipline of Mathematics , based on a thorough analysis of 166,880 researchers identified from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Mathematics, over 6262 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for approving a scientist to be considered is established at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Mathematics. The acceptance factors for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the selected discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for considering top researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars estimated for each scientific field whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scholars are added into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification methods
Since our primary goal is to make sure that only genuine researchers are listed in the ranking we believe that numbers are never meant to be a complete tool to assess the output of scientists. Because of that we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of trustworthy sources. Even though it’s not a factor defining a researcher’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should constitute a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a specific field of study. Position in the ranking is based on every scholar’s D-index using data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the research community. A detailed definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our aim is to motivate scientists, companies and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where top experts are heading and to give a way for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
