Research.com has recently updated its ranking of the best researchers in the areas of business and management, consolidating data on 166,880 scientists from various sources identifying and cataloging the most widely cited researchers. For the discipline of business and management, more than 8,531 researchers were examined. Business professor Marc Fetscherin ranks 790 in the United States and 1,827 in the world.

For the site’s ranking of top scientists (launched initially in 2014), the inclusion criteria are based on their Discipline H-index (D-index), which is the proportion of their contributions made within a given discipline and the awards and achievements of a scientist in specific areas. The D-index is used to rank scholars in descending order combined with the total number of citations. To ensure fair ranking, Research.com also considers the number of publications in journals and conferences ranked and classified in an examined discipline. Besides the use of citation-based metrics, Research.com also conducts rigorous searches for each scientist to inspect and include the awards, fellowships, and academic recognitions they have received from leading research institutions and government agencies.

Position in the ranking of the world’s best business and management scientists is based on each scholar’s D-index with the help of metrics compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most credible and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the scientific community.
