The leading researchers in the field of renal insufficiency in the UK have been listed as part of a Diabetes Times series.

The list is based on the impact of research published by the authors and has been produced by Expertscape, the world’s leading index of academic achievement and expertise in healthcare. To arrive at its rankings, Expertscape based the results on scientific publications, with both impact and frequency taken into account.

Professor David Goldsmith, from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust, was in the top spot, Professor Andrew Davenport, of University College London, came second and King’s College’s Dr Iain Macdougall was at number three.

The leading institution for research into renal insufficiency was UCL Medical School, with University of Birmingham named at number two and Oxford University coming third.

In December, we published the most influential UK researchers in type 1 diabetes and then in March we shared the UK’s 25 top researchers who study diabetes complications. Then in April we revealed the leaders in research into insulin carried out in the UK.

Expertscape’s patented process involves:

  • Regularly uploading the PubMed database, which is comprised of the millions of biomedical publications produced by the medical community. The data is then parsed and organised by over 26,000 topics (MeSH terms).
  • Expertscape then assigns a score to each article, based on the such factors as the article’s year of publication, the type of article (e.g. guidelines and reviews carry a greater score than letters to the editor), and the journal in which the article appeared (the Impact Factor).
  • A score is assigned  to each author of the article based on placement.
  • Where possible, the system then determines the institution from which the article appeared.
  • Expertscape then computes the scores for all articles, authors, institutions, cities, regions, and countries, and then graphically outputs the results on web pages. The result is millions of Expertscape web pages, and a prolific expert could have several pages.

With this process, Expertscape has developed a repository of experts across thousands of topics, with results that are 100% objective, timely, granular and specific, which make them a reliable tool for the patient or referring physician in search of a second opinion or an expert consult.
