Best Universities in Australia 2022 Ranking

The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of the leading universities in Australia is based on information acquired from Microsoft Academic Graph on 06-12-2021. Position in our world university ranking is based on a sum of H-index values of all leading scientists associated with a specific university. A leading scientist is a scholar with a D-index (discipline H-index) above a specific threshold (usually 30 or 40) for their scientific disciplines. The ranking of top universities in Australia only lists 1000 universities with the highest H-index total. Show more

The ranking process involved meticulous evaluation of 166,880 researchers on Google Scholar as well as Microsoft Academic Graph.

A detailed definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page .

Please note that the research institution or university for a scholar is typically assigned based on the affiliation information presented on their Google Scholar profile.

In comparison to other global university rankings our aim is to focus mostly on research work of top scholars associated with each institution. We want to inspire researchers, business-owners, and decision-makers around the world to explore where top science authorities are heading and to offer an opportunity for the entire scientific community to confirm who the leading authorities in popular areas of research, in particular countries, or possibly within scientific institutions are.

The ranking process involved a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers’ profiles from Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Graph. Over 132,836 profiles were examined. Scientists from more than 2,814 institutions and affiliations were analyzed.
