2017. Ranking Web of Universities. July New Edition

The July edition (2017.2.1) is built with the indicators obtained during this month in order to maintain the freshness of the data of the most current and updated Ranking of Universities. This version is NOT final.

Published figures are RANKS (lower is better), intended for showing individual performances, but they are not the values used in the calculations. Due to technical issues several key changes (marked in red) have been done, so the following table describes the current methodology:
