HSE Takes Top Places in 7 Subject Areas of ‘Expert’ Scientific Productivity Ranking

HSE Takes Top Places in 7 Subject Areas of ‘Expert’ Scientific Productivity Ranking

© HSE University

The Higher School of Economics entered ten subject areas and six narrower sections in the ranking published by the ‘Expert’ analytical centre. The university took 1st places in five subject areas and two sections. 

The ranking evaluates Russian universities according to scientometric indicators, not taking into account estimate figures and survey indicators. This year, HSE has improved its position compared to last year, and become a leader in Mathematics and Medicine. For the fourth year in a row, the university continues to maintain leading positions in Economics, Social Sciences and Humanities. For the first time, the authors of the ranking have split Economics and Management into two separate subjects, and HSE took 1st places in both of them.

In addition, HSE has maintained its position in Computer Science, taking 4th place, and made its first appearance in Artificial Intelligence (2nd-3rd place). Moreover, the university is represented in such areas as Biochemistry (6th place), Earth Sciences and Ecology (9th-11th place), as well sections in Ecology (9th-10th place), Earth Sciences (12th place), Engineering Sciences (11th-13th place), Physics and Astronomy (14th place), and Materials Science (24th-25th place).

Being published since 2016, the ranking of Russian universities allows to compare the bibliometric activity of more than a hundred universities in various subject areas. When calculating the rating, scientometric indicators are evaluated according to three categories of the same weight: the quality of growth, the effectiveness of scientific activity, and the scale and stability of scientific activity. The methodology of publicationies activity ranking has not undergone a change this year. In addition to the 14 broad subject areas, 7 narrower sections such as Economics, Management, Earth Sciences, Ecology, Metallurgy, Artificial Intelligence, and Biochemistry were singled out.
