Best Neuroscience Universities in Russia 2022

The 1st edition of ranking of the best universities in the discipline of Neuroscience was created using data consolidated from various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were acquired 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 only includes publications and citation data for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Neuroscience research
Our best universities ranking is a credible list of leading scientists from the area of Neuroscience , established by means of a thorough examination of 166,880 scientists determined from a variety of bibliometric data sources. For the area of Neuroscience, over 9233 scholars were examined.

What is D-index approval threshold for Neuroscience
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 Neuroscience. The acceptance factors for scholars to be considered into the ranking of top scientists are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the specific area plus the awards and achievements of the scholars. The D-index threshold for including best scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists assessed for each discipline whilst making sure that the top 1% of leading researchers are added into the ranking. We estimate a proximity of 30% or less between a scientist’s general H-index and their D-index.

Additional verification rules
Since our leading goal is to guarantee that only actual scientists are mentioned in ranking we realize that metrics are never meant to be a complete means to assess the work of researchers. This is why we manually inspect every profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. While it’s not a metric contributing to a scientist’s position in our ranking, the quantity of documents published in major journals and conference proceedings should form a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a selected area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-index with the help of metrics collected from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A detailed overview of our research policy can be found on our methodology page.

Our goal
Our mission is to inspire scientists, entrepreneurs and politicians worldwide to explore where prominent experts are heading and to give a way for the whole scientific community to get to know who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
