Abstract—University rankings are lists of universities ranked
according to different criteria: different systems, published
annually. This article uses seven of the world's best-known
global rankings and only in the context of computer science:
Shanghai Ranking’s Academic, CWTS Leiden, Quacquarelli
Symonds, Times Higher Education, National Taiwan University,
Best Global Universities USNews and University Ranking by
Academic Performance. We present the top10 universities by
each ranking system and by continent and country those that
appear in the top20, top100 and top500. Each of these rankings
has different items and weights, which will be listed and
analyzed in this article. The results are very different from each
other because they follow different systems. This article shows
that in top10 there is a direct relationship between the massive
presence of top Asian universities and the total dependence on
Web of Science publications. The same is not true when the data
source is Scopus database.
Index Terms—University rankings, computer science, WebOfScience, Scopus.
