The ranking encompasses 5 thousand universities from all over the world. They are rated according to only one criterion – the number of citations of scientific papers registered on individual profiles Google Scholar, which is a tool for scientists and researchers that can serve to monitor in an automatic manner the number of citations of their own papers and studies. The ranking was prepared by Cybermetrics Lab, a Spanish research institution that also prepares the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities. The results collected in Transparent Ranking will be used as one of the criteria in the coming edition of the Ranking Web of Universities 2017.
