The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the arena
of Medicine was created using data consolidated from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating the citation-based metrics were gathered 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
data for an examined discipline.
The range of our Medicine research
Our best universities ranking is a credible list of leading scholars from the area of Medicine , established by means of a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers identified from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Medicine, over 68936 researchers were analysed.
What is D-index acceptance threshold for Medicine
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is set to 70 if most of their publications are in the field of Medicine. The acceptance requirements for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the publications made within the specific discipline in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including top scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each discipline whilst ensuring 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.
Extra verification rules
As our main mission is to ensure that only credible scholars are listed in Research.com ranking we are aware that numbers are never supposed to be an absolute means to evaluate the output of scientists. For that reason we manually verify every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a factor impacting a researcher’s position in the ranking, the amount of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each scholar’s D-index with the help of metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this kind accessible to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scientists, businessmen and decision-makers around the world to examine where prominent experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
