    Its main objective is to develop a ranking system for the world universities based on academic performances, which is determined by quality and quantity of scholarly publications.

    These are: the Number of Articles, measuring current productivity; Citation, measuring research impact; Total Document, measuring the sustainability of scientific production by quantifying all scholarly literature including conference papers, reviews, letters and discussions; Article Impact Total, measuring scientific impact which is derived by aggregating the impact factors of journals in which a university published articles; Citation Impact Total, measuring the received citation quality, which is based on the impact factors of journals where the cited articles are published; and International Collaboration that measures the global acceptance of a university.

    Prof. Baykal explained that “URAP ranking system is completely based on objective data obtained from reliable bibliometric sources”, adding that its major focus is academic quality.
