Islamic Azad University, Science and Research branch, has climbed 26 places in the CWTS Leiden Ranking 2018.

According to an ISCA report, the CWTS Leiden Ranking 2018 offers important insights into the scientific performance of nearly 1000 major universities worldwide.

Based on CWTS Leiden Ranking 2018, 23 Iranian universities have been placed among 938 top universities in the world and Science and Research IAU climbed 26 places and took 12th position among Iranian universities in this ranking.

Compared with other university rankings, the Leiden Ranking offers more advanced indicators of scientific impact and collaboration. The underlying bibliometric methodology is richly documented. The Leiden Ranking provides information exclusively about the research done at universities.

Research is represented in publications, and carefully collected data about these publications forms the basis for the Leiden Ranking. This basis also ensures the independence of the Leiden Ranking, since it does not rely on data submitted by the universities themselves.

Finally, because universities are complex institutions that have a variety of forms, contexts and missions, their performance cannot be represented by a single number. The Leiden Ranking consistently presents different indicators for you to explore the performance of universities from different angles.
