2020 is the final year of the Academic Excellence Project 5-100, which has shifted the focus of Russian universities onto global rankings, or more specifically, their own positions in them and opportunities in global education and research. Before the start of the project, most universities used to compare themselves only to other Russian universities, and only a few were able to conceive of themselves in relation to international universities (in 2012, a total of 14 Russian universities made the QS ranking, and only 6 of them were in the Top 500). By the end of the project, there are now 52 Russian universities represented in global rankings, including 20 Project 5-100 universities (in four institutional rankings, including US News). 18 universities rank among the top 500 universities in the three global rankings (QS, THE, ARWU), and over two-thirds of them are participants of Project 5-100.
Project 5-100 has given our universities new competencies such as learning the best global practices, developing research and educational collaborations, forming new views on educational products, and publishing research. Today, we are witnessing the synergetic effect of this project’s impact on the system of Russian education at large, assessed by an external measure—global university rankings
The rankings include around 1500 universities from 86 countries. Since 2014, the media company has published not only a global ranking, but also 38 subject rankings, 10 of which are published for the first time this year.
To be considered for the institutional ranking, a university must have over 1,500 publications in Web of Science over the last five years or place amongst the top 250 as a result of reputation surveys. To be considered for a subject ranking, a university must have, in the case of the previously established 28 subject rankings, over 250 publications over the last five years in the relevant subject area in Web of Science. In the case of the 10 subject rankings that were added this year, a university must have at least 200 publications in the relevant field in Web of Science.
In the ranking’s methodology, Web of Science bibliometric data carry a weight of 75%, and reputation survey results over the past five years carry a weight of 25%.
