The RAEX Subject Rankings are based on three groups of indicators that assess admissions quality, reputation parameters, and bibliometric indicators. All indicators relate only to particular areas: for example, while assessing students in the ‘Economics and Management’ subject area, only those enrolled in the relevant fields were taken into account, and when calculating the number of research publications, only articles in economics and management were analysed. When assessing admissions quality, the average competitive score of students enrolled in full-time state-funded and fee-paying programmes was evaluated, taking into account points for individual achievements. Bibliometric indicators, i.e. the number of publications in a particular subject area and their citation indexes were taken from the period of 2015 to 2019 in accordance with the Web of Science Core Collection. Reputation assessment was based on surveys of two target groups – students and graduates, as well as representatives of the academic community conducted by the RAEX Agency. The total number of respondents exceeded 60,000 people.
