Uni P-Rank: a publication ranking of universities

Uni P-Rank is a publication ranking for universities and other research institutions. It provides several rankings based on different journal lists used to quantify the quality of articles. A description how Uni P-Rank evaluates institutional publication output can be found in the Methodology section.

Uni P-Rank provides multiple versions of each ranking, where in each version only those articles which have been published since a particular year are considered. Similarly, Uni P-Rank allows to restrict the ranking to certain regions and countries.

Please select one of the below rankings available in Uni P-Rank.

For each research institution, Uni P-Rank determines a score by summing up the author scores of all scholars affiliated to the institution. The author scores are calculated by determining for all articles published by the author, the journal score in the selected ranking multiplied with

and, if the result is positive, it is added to the total score of the author. Here, "authors" is the number of co-authors of the article, and "bonus" is the co-author bonus specified above. This means that with a co-author bonus of 0, the journal score is divided by the number of authors, and with a co-author bonus of 100, the full journal score is awarded regardless of the number of co-authors. With a co-author bonus of -100, only single-authored publications are counted.

The journals in the list with their respective scores are shown below:


  1. Uni P-Rank is based on the data of P-Rank: a publication ranking and uses affiliation information provided by authors within their ORCID record. Consequently, it does not maintain a complete list of all relevant institutions, affiliated scholars, and publications, and will never be able to achieve completeness.
  2. Institutions are encouraged to ensure that the affiliation data can be found in the respective ORCID record of all affiliated authors. Authors can add their employment manually. Alternatively, authors can allow a trusted individual to update their record. ORCID member institutions can add affiliations to ORCID records using the ORCID API or affiliation manager. To ensure that publications of affiliated authors are considered by Uni P-Rank, authors are encouraged to connect their ORCID iD in the Profile section of P-Rank: a publication ranking. Authors have the possibility to opt-out of P-Rank while still ensuring that their publications contribute to the institution score of Uni P-Rank.of the P-Rank webpage.
  3. Uni P-Rank seeks to maintain up-to-date information concerning the publication output of institutions, however, Uni P-Rank does not perpetually poll ORCID for updates. Thus, there might be a delay in obtaining information about new articles.
