The AD Scientific Index stands out as the sole university/institution ranking system that scrutinizes the distribution of scientists within an institution across various percentiles: the top 10%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and the total number of scientists. Apart from offering rankings at the national, continental, and global levels for all institutions, the "Type of Institution" segment delineates rankings for universities individually, distinguishing among all private and public universities.


The AD Scientific Index is also the sole platform offering comprehensive evaluations of institutions based on various metrics, such as Total H Index, Last Six Years H Index, Total i10 Index, Last Six Years i10 Index, Total Citations, and Last Six Years Citations. It also provides insights into the latest developments within these institutions. The AD Scientific Index University Ranking for 2024 highlights the areas of excellence or specialization within a university and sheds light on the outcomes of their scientist recruitment strategies. This aspect reveals institutions' capacities to attract accomplished scientists and their effectiveness in fostering advancements and retaining scientific talent.
