The international ranking is based on number of publications, citations and research excellence.
The National Taiwan University (NTU) rankings for 2022, published this week, ranks Tel Aviv University first in Israel and 112th in the world. In the ranking for 2021, the University was ranked 144th.
The Hebrew University ranked 273rd, followed by the Technion in 346th place.
The National Taiwan University ranking is among the top university rankings, along with the Shanghai ranking, the Times ranking, the QS ranking and the US News ranking. The ranking, based entirely on scientific publications, ranks the top 500 universities in the world. As such, it bears resemblance to the Shanghai ranking, which is 60% based on scientific publications (another 30% is for Nobel Prizes and the remaining 10% is used to normalize the score relative to the size of the institution).
The top five universities in the NTU rankings are: Harvard University, Stanford University, John Hopkins University, University of Toronto and the University of Oxford.
The score of each university consists of the number of publications (25% of the total score), the number of article citations (35%) and research excellence (weighing 40%). Each of these components are measured over a period of 11 years and over the past year or two. The research excellence component includes the so-called „H-Index“, the number of most cited articles and the number of articles in leading journals.
