Belarusian State University in CIS top three

MINSK, 2 February (BelTA) – The Belarusian State University (BSU) is one of the three best universities in the Commonwealth of Independent States according to the new edition of the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, BelTA learned from the BSU press service.

The Belarusian State University is now ranked 584 on the global list, 25 positions up from 609 in August 2015. Webometrics measures parameters of over 22,000 higher education institutions. There are over 30,000 higher education institutions in the world.

Once again the Belarusian State University is one of the top three CIS universities. The Lomonosov Moscow State University is ranked 134th. It is followed by the Saint Petersburg State University (452nd). As far as universities located in capital cities in the neighboring countries are concerned, the list includes University of Warsaw (282), Vilnius University (689), University of Latvia (897), and the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (1023).

The Belarusian State University is the invincible leader in Belarus. The country’s second highest ranking university is the Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno (2091). It is followed by the Belarusian National Technical University (2504). The Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR) occupies position number 3043. The Belarusian State Technological University (3537) concludes Belarus’ top five.

The Webometrics Ranking of World Universities has been compiled for over ten years now by the Spanish research lab Laboratorio de Internet. The ranking is renewed two times a year — in January and July. The ranking measures the level of scientific publications and the online presence of universities in the World Wide Web as well as their openness (the number of files found by the search system Google Scholar) and quality. The latter is measured as the number of publications by the specific university’s personnel in the world’s top 10% quotations according to Scopus (an abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature).

The current ranking has named Harvard University, Stanford University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology as the world’s top three higher education institutions.
