ISC international rankings include rankings of world universities, universities of the Islamic world, rankings of universities in D8 member countries and subject rankings of world universities.

ISC WUR by Subject 2023

ISC president said: In ISC WUR by subject 2023, the hierarchical classification scheme of the OECD has been used. In this plan, all subject areas are placed in 6 main categories and 42 subcategories. The 6 main categories in this plan are: natural sciences, engineering and technology, medicine and health, agricultural and veterinary sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts.

He continued: In ISC WUR by subject 2023, the target universities are those ones that are among the first 700 universities in the world in terms of the number of publications in that field and within a three-year period (2019-2021) published at least 150 documents in each subject area and registered in the InCites database.

Fazelzadeh pointed out: The universities that are announced in ISC WUR by subject 2023 in each subject area will be finally announced in a combined format, as well as based on the continent and country, etc. The subject ranking of ISC is based on 3 general criteria of research, international activity and innovation. Because of its importance, the research criterion has been given the most weight. Table 1 shows the ISC subject ranking criteria and indicators with assigned coefficients.
