The Expert analytical center has been conducting a study of the publication activity of Russian universities since 2016. The ranking evaluates universities based on the indicators of scientific productivity in subject areas for the previous four years, relying on publications in the Scopus database. The calculation methodology is based on four semantic blocks:

  • «Demand/quality» (the level of citation of the university in the field)
  • «Scale and sustainability of activity» (the share of HEI’s publications in the total volume of publications in the country and the Hirsch index of researchers)
  • «Quality of growth» (quality of citations, absence of unfair scientific practices)
  • «Excellence» (representation among the best publications in international databases).

A total of 152 universities were analyzed by experts in this year’s subject rankings. You can learn more about the results and methodology of the ranking on the website of AC Expert.
