The Scimago Institutions Rankings are a globally recognised ranking of scientific institutions published by Scimago Laboratories in collaboration with Elsevier. The indicators used in the ranking are divided into three distinct groups that aim to reflect the scientific, economic, and social characteristics of institutions. The research component, which accounts for 50% of the overall weightage, evaluates institutions based on their research performance, productivity, scientific leadership, high-quality publications, international collaboration, and other related factors.
The innovation component, which comprises 30% of the weightage, assesses an institution's performance based on the number of patents filed and the number of patents that cite the institution's research. The third component, which accounts for 20% of the weight, measures the societal impact of institutions.
