One indicator of high quality is that research results are published in prestigious and influential scientific journals.

 – We are a significant, visible and high-level international science University, so the result was expected. Over the past few years, we have supported research by developing our Graduate School, among other things.

CWUR has compiled university rankings since 2012, but for the first two years it listed only the 100 best universities in the world. CWUR was created as the first world university ranking that measures the quality and effectiveness of education, the prestige of the faculty staff, and the quality of research with different kinds of accounts and databases.
