Single presentation - 30 Minutes
The CWTS Leiden Ranking is a bibliometric ranking of almost 1000 major universities worldwide. After explaining the basic philosophy of the Leiden Ranking, I will focus my presentation on a number of new developments in the ranking. I will first discuss recent insights into the use of the Leiden Ranking. I will then discuss the principles developed by CWTS for promoting responsible use of university rankings. Finally, I will discuss the new open access and gender indicators included in the 2019 edition of the Leiden Ranking. I will explain the methodology underlying the new indicators and I will highlight some of the key insights offered by the indicators.
