“We are covering a lot of distance every year”
Bartın University Rector Uzun shortly introduced SCImago Institutions Ranking and said: “We made a fast entry to SIR this year and I believe we will have a better ranking next year.”
Uzun said: “SCImago Institutions Ranking has been ranking academic and research-related institutions since 2009 under research performance, innovation output and social impact by web visibility. The ranking is made using the results of a period of five years ending two years before the ranking. So that means, the 2020 results include the five-year period between 2014-2018. And the criterion to be included in the ranking is to have at least 100 works in SCOPUS database in the last year of the selected period. This year’s ranking used data from 2014-2018. Considering the fact that Bartın University increased the number of publications more than twice in 2019, we can say that our rise in this and similar rankings will continue. We had 125 international publications in 2017, 178 publications in 2018 and 257 publications in 2019.”
