The CWTS Leiden Ranking 2014 measures the scientific performance of 750 major universities worldwide. Using a sophisticated set of bibliometric indicators, the ranking aims to provide highly accurate measurements of the scientific impact of universities and of universities' involvement in scientific collaboration. The CWTS Leiden Ranking 2014 is based on Web of Science indexed publications from the period 2009–2012. The main outcomes of the ranking are summarized in a press release, and Barts and The London's impact ranking by two diffferent metrics are illustrated in the tables below.
