Selection  Process
The 3rd edition of the Research.com ranking was derived from data consolidated from multiple sources, including OpenAlex and CrossRef, with the bibliometric data for citation-based metrics acquired on 21 November 2023. The ranking was primarily based on a scientist's D-index (Discipline H-index), which focused on the number of papers and citations within the examined discipline. The D-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be evaluated is placed at 20 if most of their publications are in the discipline of political science. Research.com’s methodology evaluated 166,880 scholars from various bibliometric sources, and more than 1,924 researchers were assessed specifically in the discipline of political science.

Canada currently ranks fifth globally in political science research, with 50 leading researchers. Michael Howlett (Simon Fraser University), former Chair of the IPSA Research Committee (RC30) on Comparative Public Policy, tops the Canadian ranking. Anna Triandafyllidou (Toronto Metropolitan University), a plenary speaker at the 2023 IPSA World Congress in Buenos Aires, was ranked 10th and Richard Johnston (University of British Columbia), another IPSA member, was ranked 29th. Congratulations to all!
