The average total D-index for the top 10% of universities is 96 against an average of 66 for all 6 Polish universities included in the ranking. The average number of published articles in the discipline of mechanical and aviation Engineering by scientists associated in the top 10% of the ranking is 975 against 451 on average for all 6 universities. The average number of citations by researchers affiliated to the top 5% of universities is 16627 against 10394 on average for all 6 universities.
There are 550 technical universities offering mechanical engineering courses in the list.
The D-index threshold for a researcher’s inclusion in the ranking is 30 if the majority of their publications are in mechanical and aviation engineering. The criteria for inclusion of researchers in the ranking of top researchers is based on the D-index, the ratio of contributions made within the chosen discipline, in addition to the researchers’ awards and achievements. The D-index threshold for inclusion of top scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists evaluated for each research area, while ensuring that the top 1% of scientists are included in the list.
The second edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field of mechanical and aviation engineering has been created using data combined from multiple data sources, including OpenAlex and CrossRef.
Bibliometric data for the estimation of citation-based metrics was collected on 21.12.2022. Ranking position is determined by the sum of the D-indexes (Discipline H-index) of all ranking researchers affiliated with the institution. The D-index only takes into account publications and citation values for the discipline under study.
Research.com reports that the top university ranking is a reliable list of leading researchers in the discipline of mechanical and aviation engineering, created from a detailed analysis of 166,880 researchers identified from various bibliometric data sources.
As many as 5741 researchers in the mechanical and aviation engineering discipline were analysed.
