SCImago Institutions Rankings is a scientific resource for the evaluation of universities and scientific organizations around the world. It is developed by SCImago Lab based on the international database of scientific citation Scopus.
Academic and research-related institutions ranked by a composite indicator that combines three different sets of indicators based on research performance, innovation outputs and societal impact measured by their web visibility. Some indicators are not affected by the number of students, scientists and teachers, the size of the campus, which equalizes the chances of entering the ranking of different scale universities.
