Ratings 21 August 2018
A new Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, analyzing the visibility of the world’s leading universities on the Internet, fixed yet another improvement for the University of Tyumen in the global chart. In 6 months, UTMN jumped up 205 positions and is now 2749th among 25,000 universities worldwide and the 38th out of 1172 universities in Russia.

UTMN also showed a remarkably high position in Presence Rank – 1129th in the world and 23d in Russia.  

Published twice a year, the Webometrics Ranking allows for the implicit evaluation of universities’ research achievements through comparing their websites. Webometrics’ distinctive features are its stable methodology and the high dynamics of changes in ranking positions. While the methodologies of such rankings as ARWU, QS and THE are constantly changing, Webometrics’ ranking principles remain unchanged, consequently the movement of a university’s position in this ranking is more indicative. The ranking methodology is based on four indicators: impact, presence, excellence and openness. Nowadays, Webometrics is as authoritative as any other academic rankings. Moreover, its results are more dynamic as they immediately show the activity of the university promotion on the Internet.

UTMN demonstrates steady progress in the Webometrics Ranking: in 2015 the university was ranked 4387th in the global chart and 96th among Russian universities.
