The first edition of Research.com’s ranking of rising stars in science is based on data collected from Microsoft Academic Graph on Dec. 6, 2021. The positions in the ranking are based on a scientist’s general h-index. Only scientists whose oldest publication falls in the last 12 years or less years ago have been considered.

The ranking covers all major areas of science. It is based on a meticulous examination of 166,880 scientists on the Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Graph.

The h-index threshold for approving a scholar to be considered for the global ranking was set differently for each scientific discipline but was 30 or 40 in most cases.

On top of the list is Associate Prof. Mohsen Sheikholeslami from the Babol Noshirvani University of Technology in Iran, who majors in mechanical and aerospace engineering.

He is followed by Matthew D. Hellmann, Doctor of Medicine (MD) with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in the U.S.

Two foreign scientists working in Vietnam, both with the Ton Duc Thang University in HCMC, are also on the list.

Mohammad Ghalambaz in the field of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Hossein Moayedi in the field of Engineering and Technology are ranked 571st and 773rd, respectively.

Research.com described itself as the number one research portal for scientists. Its mission is to make it easier for professors, research fellows, and those studying for a PhD or a master’s degree to progress with their research and to ensure they are always up-to-date with the latest conferences around the world and publications related to their work.
