Best Mathematics Universities in Italy 2023

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best universities in the discipline of Mathematics was created using data consolidated from multiple 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 scholar’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index includes exclusively publications and citation values for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Mathematics research
Our best universities ranking is a reliable list of leading scholars from the discipline of Mathematics , created using a meticulous examination of 166,880 scholars discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Mathematics, more than 6262 scientists were examined.

What is D-index acceptance threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be examined is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the area of Mathematics. The acceptance factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the publications made within the given discipline plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including best researchers is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers projected for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scientists are considered into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Extra verification rules
As our primary aim is to make sure that only genuine researchers are included in ranking we are aware that metrics are never supposed to be an absolute means to quantify the work of scholars. For that reason we manually check every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. Although it’s not a element impacting a scholar’s position in ranking, the quantity of papers published in major journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary signal of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index using information gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type open to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our agenda
Our aim is to inspire scientists, businessmen and administrative bodies worldwide to investigate where top experts are heading and to offer a way for the whole research community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
