The latest edition of the ranking includes 5 thousand universities from around the world, arranged according to one criterion: citations in Google Scholar. The ranking has been prepared by a Spanish research institution - Cybermetrics Lab that prepares the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities.


The ranking's top ten was dominated by universities in the United States. The first place once again went to Harvard University with over 1.7 million citations, followed by Stanford University; Johns Hopkins University; University of California Berkeley;; Massachusetts Institute of Technology; University of Chicago. In the 7th place was a university from the UK - the University of Cambridge. Princeton University in the US took 8th place. The remaining places in the top ten were occupied two more British universities: University College London and University of Oxford.


Of the more than 70 Polish universities included in the ranking, Warsaw University of Technology had the highest 653rd position with nearly 83 thousand citations. It was followed by the University of Warsaw (671st place with more than 79 thousand citations) and Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (758th place, 69 thousand citations). Further in the ranking were also the Jagiellonian University (979th place), the University of Wroclaw (983rd place); Poznań University of Technology (1001st place); AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków (1002nd place); Medical University of Warsaw (1169th place.); University of Silesia in Katowice (1232nd place); Wroclaw University of Technology (1249th place).


The ranking takes into account only one criterion: the number of citations of scientific papers registered in the individual Google Scholar profiles. Google Scholar is a tool designed for scientists for automatic monitoring of the number of citations of their work. The data in the ranking include the top ten public profiles of each university. Only public profiles with institutional e-mail addresses are taken into account in the ranking.
