- impact – the combination of the number of external hyperlinks to the domain of the university (external inlinks) and the number of domains from which these referrals arrive (referring domains) – 50%;
- openness – number of citations by university authors according to Google Scholar Citations – 10%;
- excellence – scientific articles published by the authors of the University in journals indexed by the bibliometric base SCOPUS, and are part of the 10% of the articles most cited in their scientific fields, according to Scimago Group – 35%.
