Our ranking is the first system employed through h-index, an indicator reflecting both the quality and quantity of research papers; 55% of the score represents a short-term progress of university in the performance of research. It should be noted that this ranking is exclusively based on the qualitative and quantitative performance of scientific papers. It does not evaluate the overall performance of university in teaching, research or administration …The database of WOS and ESI of Thomson Reuters are selected because of its good and consistent quality of data … ” (more)
