General information

The list includes the world's some 1000 universities or research institutes  and is based on bibliometric data from Web of Science.

The CWTS ranking is not a single league table but is composed of a number of separate lists, each of which is based on a single impact or collaboration indicator. 

List construction

Impact Indicators

Indicator Explanation
P Number of publications
PP (top 10%) Proportion of publications belonging to the top 10% most frequently cited within its field

Collaboration indicators

Indicator Explanation
PP (collab) Total proportion of interinstitutional collaborative publications
PP (int collab) Proportion of international collaborative publications
PP (UI collab) Proportion of collaborative publications with industry

Lists from 2014 are based on publications from 2009-2012. 2013 500 universities was listed. This in combination with a changed methodology when it comes to field normalization, makes comparissions between the years difficult.
