The AD Scientific Index or the Alper-Doger Scientific Index is a ranking and analysis system based on the scientific performance and the added value of the scientific productivity of individual scientists. It uses the total and the last five-year productivity coefficients of scientists based on the h-index and i10 index scores and citations in Google Scholar. It positions itself as both academic ranking and analysis results.
