Based on the 2020 ranking;

Bu-Ali Sina University ranked 922nd in the Leiden Ranking of the universities of the world

 

As reported by BASNA and according to the Islamic World Science Citation Center (ISC), Dr. Dehqani, President of ISC stated: "Leiden is an authentic university evaluation systems which evaluates and ranks the top universities of the world based on authentic scientometric indicators annually. In 2020, universities of the world were ranked by Leiden system based on 20 indicators in the form of four general categories, namely scientific impact, scientific diplomacy, open access to publishing, and gender diversity. These evaluations were carried out according to the scientific productions of the universities between 2015 and 2018 as documented in Web of Science website".

Category of scientific impact utilized indicators including top 1% articles, top 5% articles, top 10% articles, and top 50% articles.

"In the scientific diplomacy category, indicators such as scientific collaboration, international collaboration, industrial collaboration, scientific collaboration from less than 100 kilometers of geographical distance, and scientific collaboration from more than 5000 kilometers of geographical distance were considered", President of ISC added.

Dehqani said: "Open access to publications was calculated based on the number of open access publications, gold open access publications, hybrid open access publications, bronze open access publications, and green open access publications of the university".

He added: "Gender diversity included indicators of collaboration with authors whose gender is unknown, male authors (as a proportion of the total number of authors), female authors (as a proportion of the total number of authors), male authors (as a proportion of the total number of male and female authors), and female authors (as a proportion of the total number of male and female authors)".

The following table illustrates the criteria and indicators of the Leiden Ranking.

President of ISC observed: "Leiden Ranking, unlike other ranking systems of the world, does not calculate a single rank for the universities included in its ranking; rather, universities are ranked in all of the indicators and criteria of the Leiden system. Therefore, one of the features of Leiden Ranking is that it does not allocate a total ranking to the universities based on all indicators and their respective weightings; rather, Leiden calculates and publishes the points and rankings of the universities separately for each indicator".

Dr. Dehqani stipulated: "The number of Iranian universities in Leiden Ranking has increased each year. The following chart demonstrates the growth of the number of Iranian universities in the Leiden Ranking".
