Introduction:

The Islamic World Science Citation Center (ISC) introduced its new global university ranking system “World University Rankings 2018” (www.wur.isc.gov.ir) in March 2019. Of course, ranking is not a new practice in ISC. In fact, ISC – as an ISESCO-Affiliated Center – based on its duties, has been ranking OIC universities since its establishment in 2008. But in 2018, it took the initiative to upgrade its regional ranking system into a global one.

This new ranking system reports the status of 1220 universities from all over the world. They were selected from a population of more than 3000 universities. At this stage, all universities with at least 1500 WoS articles during 2014-2016 were considered. This is important since it allows for comparison of universities of similar size.

This ranking system covers four general criteria including research, education, international activity and innovation comprising 12 subparts as indicated in Figure 1 below:

Through this ranking system, universities can receive invaluable information about their general performance as well as their performance in each subpart as they can compare their performance with other universities over the globe. This latter possibility can be used efficiently in policy making so as to enhance the status of each university within each country, each region or over the globe.

Besides this new service, ISC continuously analyzes the performance of different universities and submits consultancy reports with the objective to accelerate the rate of improvement of each university. To avail themselves of this opportunity, universities may contact ISC through info@isc.gov.ir after which the necessary steps and formalities will be communicated. In what follows a brief account of the performance of the OIC region and Universite De Tunis-El-Manar is provided:
