University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP), that evaluates the quality of research performance of world’s universities, gave Sumy State University the fourth position among Ukrainian universities and included it to the TOP-10% universities in the worldwide total.

With the help of scientometric database Web of Science URAP evaluates both quality and quantity of publications, international research collaboration performance, and credibility of publications by fields of knowledge.

URAP publishes the results of TOP-2000 world’s universities, and, for the first time, a waiting list of 200 universities-candidates to join the TOP-group.

5 Ukrainian universities including Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, National Technical University of Ukraine ‘Kyiv Polytechnic Institute,’ Sumy State University and National Technical University ‘Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute’ made it to URAP.

It might be interesting to know, that URAP results 2015/16 for Ukrainian universities almost certainly correspond to the results of QS World University Rankings 2015/16 and Webometrics (January, 2016). University Ranking by Academic Performance is considered to be one of the four main scientometric world rankings along with SCImago, CWTS Leiden Ranking and Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities.
