The University of Oulu is ranked at 485 in the world, and at number four in Finland in the Leiden University CWTS ranking. The ranking takes into account the publications of the universities. The list includes 842 universities from 53 countries.
"This global and national ranking of the University of Oulu is in line with the good results the University of Oulu has received in other comparisons", says Planning Director Pertti Tikkanen.
The CWTS ranking includes all fields of science, and each major field can be separately viewed. They are biomedical and health sciences, life and earth sciences, mathematics and computer science, physical sciences and engineering, and social sciences and humanities.
The default meter of the CWTS ranking is the weighted number of publications. More weight is given to publications where all authors come from the same university.
