World Scientist and University Rankings 2023

World Scientist and University Social Sciences / Social Sciences Rankings 2023

AD Scientific Index analyzes academic studies from 101 countries, 775 universities/institutions, and 1.628 scientists by using numerous criteria to present results to be used for the evaluation of productivity and efficiency by individuals and institutions. In addition to sorting by the “total H-index” you can find here, you can examine several rankings and analyses by the "last 6 years H-index", "total i10 index", "last 6 years' i10 index", "total number of citations", and “last 6 years’ citations”.
