Best Medicine Universities in Netherlands 2022

The 1st edition of ranking of the best universities in the field of Medicine relies os data derived from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for evaluating the citation-based metrics were collected on 06-12-2021. 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 includes exclusively papers and citation data for an examined discipline.

The scope of our Medicine research’s best universities ranking is a reliable list of leading scientists from the discipline of Medicine , established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 scholars discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the field of Medicine, over 65743 scientists were investigated.

What is D-index approval threshold for Medicine
The D-index threshold for including a researcher to be evaluated is set to 70 if the majority of of their publications are in the discipline of Medicine. The approval 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 given area in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scholars projected for each area od study whilst making sure that the top 1% of best researchers are incorporated into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.

Other verification practices
As our primary aim is to ensure that only credible scholars are included in ranking we realize that raw data are never supposed to be a full measure to evaluate the work of scientists. Because of that we manually check each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a varied range of credible sources. While it’s not a factor impacting a scientist’s position in the ranking, the number of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should form a reliable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given discipline. Position in the ranking is based on each researcher’s D-index with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-established bibliometric databases of this type available to the scientific community. A comprehensive explanation of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our mission is to motivate scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians around the world to investigate where prominent experts are heading and to offer a way for the entire scientific community to discover who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
