Global Institutions Profiles Project

Since 2009, Clarivate has been profiling the world’s leading universities and research institutions using an exclusive set of key performance indicators for our Institutional Profiles initiative. These Institutional profiles facilitate a multidimensional and unbiased comparison of all aspects of a university’s performance regardless of the university’s mission, size, geographical location, or subject mix. Combining gold-standard bibliometric information with unique data on reputation, demographics of staff, students and funding creates a 360-degree view of all aspects of an institution’s performance.

Data for Institutional Profiles come from three primary sources: institutional data collection, an academic reputation survey, and bibliometric analysis. Visualizations enable you to track the performance of institutions over time and compare institutions on the basis of a wide range of performance measures.

Please note: In Institutional Profiles, data are updated on an annual basis and years are always equal to actual year minus 2 for both the institutional data collection and the corresponding bibliometric data. For the institutional data, this means the academic year that ended in actual year minus two. However, the survey is from the actual year. So, for 2020’s update in October 2020, this will include data provided by the institutions for the academic year 2017-18, bibliometric data from 2018, and reputation survey data from earlier in 2020.

The current Institutional Profiles data was updated in October 2020 and includes data provided by the institutions for the academic year 2017-18, bibliometric data from 2018, and reputation survey data from earlier in 2020.

For the bibliometric indicators, the paper, and citation counts are limited to SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI indexes from Web of Science; paper counts, only include articles and reviews.
