The publication activity ranking evaluates universities on the basis of their research productivity in the previous four years, based on publications in the Scopus database. Rankings are published in sixteen subject areas and nine narrow sub-areas. All indicators are divided into four equally weighted blocks:
- «Demand/Quality» (the citation level of the university in the field)
- «Scale and sustainability of activity» (the share of publications of the university in the total volume of publications in the country and the Hirsch index of researchers)
- «Growth quality» (quality of citations, absence of unfair scientific practices)
- «Excellence» (representation among the best publications in international databases).
In all, experts ranked more than 150 universities in subject areas and their profiles this year. You can learn more about the results and methodology of the ranking on the website of the Expert Analytical Center.
