The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the discipline
of Mathematics relies os data combined from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating 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
metrics for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Mathematics research
Our best universities ranking is a credible lineup of leading scholars from the discipline of Mathematics , established by means of a thorough study of 166,880 scholars determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the field of Mathematics, as many as 6262 researchers were examined.
What is D-index approval threshold for Mathematics
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be examined is established at 30 if most of their publications are in the area of Mathematics. The acceptance requirements for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the scientists. The D-index threshold for considering leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists projected for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of best scientists are incorporated into the ranking. 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 goal is to ensure that only genuine researchers are listed in Research.com ranking we realize that metrics are never supposed to be a complete measure to evaluate the output of scholars. For that reason we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of credible sources. Although it’s not a element contributing to a researcher’s position in Research.com ranking, the quantity of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is determined by each researcher’s D-index according to data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most prominent and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive definition of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our goal is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to give a way for the whole scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
