The European Scientific-Industrial Chamber has published annual results of the World Research Institutions Ranking (WRIR-2014).
In 2014, nearly 15,400 world science and research institutions split to 10 categories according to the specialization participated in WRIR-2014. In particular, WRIR-2014 included evaluation of institution activities in chemistry, computational and applied mathematics, biology and agriculture, physics, Earth science, materials science, medicine, social and engineering sciences (including chemical engineering).
The evaluation of research quality was done by three levels: level A (from A to AAA) that corresponds to “high quality research performance”, level B (from B to BBB+) – “good quality research performance”, and level C (from C to CCC +) – “quality research performance”. WRIR included only institutions that met international standards of research quality (Levels C to A).
N.D. ZelinskyInstitute of Organic Chemistry RAS received the BBB+ ranking (“good quality research performance”) in the category Chemical Sciences. Noteworthy is that ZIOC RAS ranked second among Russian chemical institutes.
In total the category “Chemical Sciences” encompassed 538 research institutions. A complete list of the WRIR ranking in Chemical Sciences is available here.
