UniPage international rankings principles

UniPage scores for each university are calculated in accordance with the company’s own criteria. These criteria imply that the university score is based on the proportion of following three indicators.
  • The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) contributes 50% оf the score. This ranking is made by the Center for World-Class Universities of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The main goal of this ranking is to compare the research capacity of different universities. ARWU consists of six indicators, including the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, the number of highly cited researchers selected by Thomson Reuters (Web of Science), the number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science, the number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index — Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index, and per capita performance of a university.
  • QS World University Rankings contribute the other half of the score. This ranking is highly significant because it represents not only research, but also several educational indicators. It includes six metrics: Academic Reputation, Employer Reputation, Faculty/Student Ratio, Citations per faculty, International Faculty Ratio, and International Student Ratio.
  • Less than one percent of the score is provided by the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities. This ranking estimates universities’ web sites content and its web citation index.

  • Thus, the UniPage ranking of universities is a result of mathematical calculations, which unifies metrics of internationally recognized ratings. To obtain more information concerning existing rankings of universities read our aricle on this topic.
