JYU keeps its position in the CWTS Leiden Ranking

This year the University of Jyväskylä’s position in the CWTS Leiden Ranking is 620, the sixth best of Finnish universities. Last year JYU’s position was 602.

The ranking lists universities based on their publications. The 2018 list comprises 900 universities from all over the world, including eight from Finland.

For the comparison, CWTS Leiden uses citation indices from the Web of Science database. The ranking takes into account the most cited 10% of publications in the field. It uses a fractional counting method, meaning that the impact of a publication is lower if the authors are from several universities.
