The third issue of The Three University Missions Moscow International University Ranking has been released. It features a total of 1200 universities from 79 countries. It is a new academic ranking, the first to evaluate the three key university missions: education, research, and interaction with society. Ranking uses a number of criteria calculated on the basis of objective data, and does not use reputation surveys. The methodology is a result of a wide public discussion in Russia and abroad with a total of over 100 contributing universities. The ranking has been produced by the Association of Rating, Ranking, and Other Performance Evaluations Makers (ARM). The project uses data and metrics from InCites provided by Clarivate Analytics and Global Institutional Profiles Project (GIPP).
While the top of the list is dominated by the US and UK universities, three Russian universities take fairly high positions in the top 100.
