HSE Tops Expert Analytical Centre Rankings in 7 Subject Areas
HSE University has appeared in 10 subject areas and six subject categories of the Expert Analytical Centre ranking of university research productivity. Moreover, HSE ranked 1st in five areas and two sections.

The Russian university ranking, which can compare the bibliometric activity of more than a hundred universities in various subjects, has been published since 2016. This ranking assesses the scientometric indicators of a university within three equal categories: quality of growth; effectiveness of research activities; scale and stability of research activities.
The ranking’s methodology was not subject to conceptual changes this year. Nevertheless, in addition to 14 rankings in broad subject areas, seven narrower categories, such as Economics, Management, Earth Sciences, Ecology, Metallurgy, AI and Biochemistry, were developed.
