TAU 1st in Israel According to National Taiwan University Ranking
Performance ranking of scientific papers for world universities
The National Taiwan University (NTU) rankings for 2020 ranks Tel Aviv University 136th in the world and the first in Israel. In the ranking for 2019, the University was ranked 138th.
The NTU rankings are among the leading university rankings, alongside the Shanghai rankings, the Times rankings, the QS rankings and the U.S. News rankings.
The ranking, based entirely on scientific publications, ranks the world's top 500 universities. As such, it bears resemblance to the Shanghai ranking, which is 60% based on scientific publications (another 30% is for Nobel Prizes and the remaining 10% is used to normalize the score relative to the size of the institution). The top five universities in the NTU rankings are: Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Toronto, John Hopkins University and University of London, University College London.
The score of each university consists of the number of publications (25% of the total score), the number of citations of the articles (35%) and research excellence (weighing 40%). Each of these components are measured over a period of 11 years and over the past two years. The research excellence component includes: the "H-Index", the number of most cited articles and the number of articles in leading journals.
In the Webometrics ranking which was published in July 2020 and ranks the online presence of more than 30, 000 higher education institutions in the world, TAU was ranked first in Israel and 123rd in the world.
