URAP 2014-2015 Field Based Ranking Indicators

URAP 2014-2015 Field Based Ranking is based on 5 academic performance indicators. Since URAP is an academic performance based ranking, publications constitute the basis of the ranking methodology. Both quality and quantity of publications and international research collaboration performance are used as indicators. The indicators, the data sources, and the duration of coverage are summarized in the table below.

A detailed description of each indicator is provided below:

Article : is a measure of scientific productivity which includes articles published in 2011-2013 and indexed by Web of Science. The weight of this indicator on the overall ranking is %25.

Citation: is a measure of research impact and scored according to the total number of citations received in 2011-2013 for the articles published in and indexed by Web of Science. Self-citations are excluded. The effect of citation on the overall ranking is %20.

Article Impact Total (AIT): is a measure of scientific productivity revised by the institution's normalized CPP(1) with respect to the world CPP in the corresponding field. AIT is the number of publications multiplied by the institution's CPP divided by the world CPP in that field between 2011 and 2013. The ratio of the institution's CPP and the world CPP indicates whether the institution is performing above or below the world average in that field. The weight of this indicator is %20.

Citation Impact Total (CIT): is a measure of research impact revised by the institution's normalized CPP with respect to the world CPP in the corresponding field. CIT is the number of citations multiplied by the institution's CPP divided by the world CPP in that field between 2011 and 2013. The contribution of this indicator to the overall ranking is %25.

International Collaboration : is a measure of global acceptance of a university. International collaboration data, which is based on the total number of publications made in collaboration with foreign universities, is obtained from InCites for the years 2011-2013. The weight of this indicator is %10 in the overall ranking.

For the 2013 URAP Field Ranking, bibliometric data is obtained through Thomson Reuters' InCites research analytics service(2), which provides an interface to the Web of Science database. The 23 fields used in the ranking are based on the discipline classification matrix developed by the Australian Research Council for journals indexed in Web of Science(3) .
