Best Mathematics Universities in Russia 2023

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best universities in the field of Mathematics is based on data combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for devising 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 scientist's affiliated with a given institution. D-index only includes publications and citation metrics for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Mathematics research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading researchers from the area of Mathematics , created using a meticulous examination of 166,880 scientists determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Mathematics, more than 6262 researchers were examined.

What is D-index approval threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for approving a researcher to be evaluated is placed at 30 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Mathematics. The inclusion criteria for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific field of study plus the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of researchers assessed for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading scientists are considered into the list. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification practices
As our primary aim is to ensure that only actual scientists are mentioned in our ranking we are aware that metrics are never meant to be a complete measure to quantify the contributions of scientists. This is why we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a factor contributing to a scientist’s position in ranking, the number of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is established using every researcher’s D-index with the help of data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind available to the research community. A thorough definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our mission is to motivate scholars, companies and decision-makers around the world to examine where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
