The annual release of the ranking of the best scientists in the disciplines of Microbiology and Animal Science and Veterinary relies on data derived from multiple data sources, and the position in the ranking is based on a scholar’s D-index (Discipline H-index) calculated by considering only the publications and their citation values deemed to belong to the examined discipline during researcher’s lifetime career. The inclusion criteria for scholars are based on their discipline h-index, proportion of their contributions made within the given discipline, as well as on their awards and achievements.
