A. Bases on accounts of various researchers
B. Basing it on various researchers’ accounts
C. With accounts of various researchers used for a basis
D. By the accounts of various researchers they used
E. Using accounts of various researchers

i would pick E.

A. Bases on accounts? unidiomatic
B. Basing it ... wrong right there already... that notorious it... no possible antecedent
C. Wordy
D. By the account is the wrong starting modifier for a noun, scientist
E. The scientist, using accounts of various ..., have known... ok sounds the best so far.
