THE Rankings 2013-2014 (2): Citations
This is to be found here.
I am just looking at the first page, the list from 1-200, and found that the scores of top 10 in this category takes ranges from 99.0 - 100.0. Below I try to reorder the ranking just for this indicator, and also include the other schools listed in the top 13 for overall ranking.
|2||UC Santa Cruz||99.9|
|6||UC Santa Barbara||99.4|
|10||Florida Institute of Technology||99.0|
|Imperial College London||90.0|
1. List seems to favor science and technology schools - e.g. high scores of MIT and Caltech and low scores for Oxford and Yale.
2. Dominance of the UC system - 3 of them in top 10.
3. Imperial College London is quite a bit behind - now the question is - what brought them to the top 13?
4. Notables non-top 13 schools: Rice, UC Santa Cruz, UC Santa Barbara, Florida Institute of Technology
5. Lastly, in my HYPMS+CO+CCC formulation, only HPMS + Caltech is on this list of top 10 based on citations. Yale, Cambridge, Oxford, Columbia, Chicago are out.
BTW, it seems fairly clear that if the universities do not primarily generate research output in English, there is no chance you get a good citation score and get into the top list.
