Google Scholar Citations introduced very recently the institutional profiles for providing rankings of scientists who shared the same standardized name and email address of an institution. The total number of individual profiles is probably close to one million, while the number of universities profiles is over 5000, so it is possible to build a global ranking that although still incomplete can be representative at least for the best universities.

     This ranking is an experiment for testing the suitability of including GSC data in the Rankings Web, but it is still in beta as there are many shortcomings that should be solved in future editions. The current methodology is simple:

          1. Only institutional profiles are chosen. If your university or your faculty members are not included, please promote they set up (voluntarily) their own Google Scholar Citations public profile with a normalized (official) name of the university in the affiliation and using the institutional email address.
[adinserter name=”Block 4″]
          2. Data from the top 10 public profiles of each university are collected. This number of profiles is for allowing size independent comparisons, but we will probably increase it significantly in the future.

          3. The head of the list is excluded for improving representativeness. For the rest of the top 10 (maximum 9 profiles) the number of citations are added and the institutions are ranked in descending order of this indicator. If there are several entries for the same author, only the best profile is used penalizing not cleaning duplicates from the list.

     4. The figures are valid only at the time of collection. We don`t comment on the numbers or absences as for this edition no changes will be done as it is only a test. For future editions we will try to implement addition/correction systems. Please, contact directly with Google Scholar for any aspect related with its database or profiles.
IMPORTANT INFO: To set up an personal profile in Google Scholar Citations database is voluntary, but once made it public the responsibility for info correctness belongs to the author. GSC automatically updates the profiles that is very practical but that sometimes adds non-pertinent records and citations to the profile. Authors should be aware of these issues and clean their profiles periodically. Also institutions should monitor their members profiles for intended (or unintended) fake, incorrect or duplicate records. This is key for the ranking as any institution with at least one of these problems can be excluded from future editions of the ranking.
