The University of Jordan (UJ) has been ranked 803rd globally and 6th in the Arab world by Google Scholar Citations (GSC).
The results of the third edition of the international academic ranking Webometrics Top Universities by Google Scholar Citations, which have been announced recently, reveals an improvement of 210 positions over previous edition.
Google Scholar Citations assesses over 5000 official profiles of universities worldwide.
This ranking is based on the number of citations of scientific research produced by the scientists of an institution.
This ranking is a project of the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group that belongs to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).
The ranking is an experiment for testing the suitability of including GSC data in the Rankings Web.
In the methodology, only institutional profiles are chosen, data from the top 10 public profiles of each university are collected and the head of the list is excluded for improving representativeness. The figures are valid only at the time of collection.
