Best Plant Science and Agronomy Universities in Australia 2023

The 2nd edition of ranking of the best universities in the discipline of Plant Science and Agronomy is based on data consolidated from a wide range of data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were acquired 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 only includes publications and citation values for an examined discipline.

The focus of our Plant Science and Agronomy research
Our best universities ranking is a trustworthy lineup of leading scholars from the field of Plant Science and Agronomy , created using a thorough study of 166,880 scientists discovered from various bibliometric data sources. For the discipline of Plant Science and Agronomy, as many as 5065 scholars were investigated.

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

Extra verification practices
Because our leading mission is to make sure that only actual scientists are included in ranking we are aware that raw data are never supposed to be an absolute means to quantify the output of scientists. Because of that we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a metric contributing to a researcher’s position in ranking, the quantity of documents published in prominent journals and conference proceedings should constitute a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-index with the help of information compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this type available to the research community. A comprehensive explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.

Our mission
Our objective is to inspire scientists, companies and administrative bodies worldwide to investigate where top experts are heading and to provide a way for the entire research community to find out who the leading experts in specific areas of study, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
