Vietnamese Universities in the ranking

URAP is a ranking organization established in 2010 by the Middle East Technical University, a prestigious Turkish public university, ranked 601-800 by the Times Higher Education (THE), UK.

The unit responsible for data analysis and ranking is the Information Science Department of this university, a department of data science.

Data for ranking are from the Web of Science (ISI, Clarivate) database, the world's leading scientific database. URAP analyzes various criteria for academic achievements of universities. It focuses on 6 main criteria:

1. Number of studies published in journals with high impact rate in the most recent year: accounted for 21% of total points;

2. Number of quotes of works in journals with high impact rate in the last 5 years: accounted for 21% of total points;

3. The total number of research papers published internationally on the ISI in the last 5 years: 10% of total points;

4. Publishers rank in 23 majors according to the Web of Science compared to the world’s average: 18% of total points;

5. Publishers rank in 23 majors according to the Web of Science and quotes compared to the world’s average: 18% of total points;

6. International cooperation in scientific research: 15% of total points.

 

Top 10 Universities in the world according to URAP

According to experts, the use of the world's leading scientific database (ISI), an objective assessment by a scientific organization makes URAP one of the most reliable university rankings.

According to Dr. Le Van Ut, Head of Office for Scientific and Technological Development Management of Ton Duc Thang University, URAP uses a set of scientific and objective evaluation criteria, not only the number of scientific publications but the quality of scientific works is also prioritized.

This ranking does not emphasize 'confidential vote' by the expert who is being picked up or the criteria for the choice of expert, whether the selected expert understands and evaluates the universities objectively or not… as the way of other current rankings in the world.

Annually, the world university ranking agencies respectively publish the list of the best universities for students worldwide. Each organization evaluates according to its own criteria. Some universities have stable rankings over many years while others have continuous changes in their rankings.

Nowadays, there are approximately 20000 universities all over the world.
