The kdScore™ for each Investigator encapsulates an investigator's expertise within a disease area by weighting roughly 30 different factors across 7 different data sources:
The algorithm accounts for volume of trials, recency of activity, times cited, study type, and inspection deficiencies among other factors, while also minimizing reporting biases. Investigators are ranked against each other on both their overall experience and their expertise within a disease, yielding a kdScore between 1 and 100. Investigators with the greatest level of experience and the most significant influence in the selected field will have kdScore that approaches 100. Looking to filter your list further?
