Guide2Research, a portal of computer science research, has published the latest edition of its University Ranking for Computer Science and Electronics. Data are derived from more than 6,000 profiles of computer scientists in Google Scholar and DBLP, a database of journals and proceedings, now published by Schloss Dagstuhl.
The ranking is based on two metrics: h-index and the number of publications in DBLP. The top five countries ranked according to the number of researchers are:
- USA (154)
- UK (44)
- Germany (41)
- Italy (32)
- France (31).
Asia does not do as well in in these rankings as it does in others. China is represented by 25 researchers, India by 14, Japan by 10 and Singapore by 7. The Middle East does quite well with 7 researchers from Israel, 5 from Turkey, 4 each from Saudi Arabia and Iran, 2 from Qatar and 1 from the United Arab Emirates.
The top of these rankings of these rankings are dominated by the USA. The best non-US performer is the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
The top ten universities are:
- Carnegie Mellon University
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Stanford University
- University of California Berkeley
- University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- Georgia Institute of Technology
- University of Maryland College Park
- University of California San Diego
- École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
- University of Washington.
