Best Universities in Germany 2022 Ranking

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

The ranking process involved thorough evaluation of 166,880 scientists on Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Graph.

An indepth definition of our research process is available on our methodology page .

Please take into consideration that the scientific institution or university for a scientist is typically chosen based on the affiliation information featured on their Google Scholar profile.

In comparison to other world university rankings our goal is to focus mostly on scientific accomplishments of leading researchers affiliated with each institution. We want to inspire researchers, executives, and decision-makers across the world to find out where top experts are heading and to offer an opportunity for the whole research community to determine who the leading authorities in specific areas of research, in particular countries, or even within scientific organizations 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.
