Scientific publications in reputable publications - this is not only pride for the scientist himself, but also a big plus for the university where he works. And if a lot of such teachers work in an educational institution, this raises the rating of the educational institution in solid scientometric databases. Even better, when they manage to motivate their students to write solid scientific articles. Then the university ranks high in independent rankings.
Scopus is the world's largest scientometric database in terms of the amount of published content. Founded in 2006, it has grown at an unprecedented pace and has become an unprecedented phenomenon in the world of science.
Today, Scopus reviews 24,000 scientific articles on a regular basis. As for monitoring the citation of materials published by researchers, the Hirsch index is taken into account here. It is on the basis of this index that one can understand what is the ratio of the number of works published by a scientist and the number of their citations by other members of the scientific community.
It is worth noting that it is citation that largely determines how high-quality the material is. This is an indicator that the scientist's works are of interest and his articles are in demand. The more teachers who have such works work at the university, the higher the educational institution was able to get into the Scopus 2022 university ranking.
If speak about TOP-10 best Ukrainian universities for this parameter, then the rating is headed by the Kyiv National University. Shevchenko. The second position is Kharkiv National University. Karazin, and the third place is occupied by Odessa National University. Mechnikov.
Also in this rating other universities of Lviv, Chernivtsi, Sumy were noted. And this TOP was closed by the Carpathian National University. Stefanik.
For each university, high positions in the Scopus scientometric database are prestigious. They point to several important parameters at once, for example:
If we talk about the principles by which Scopus research is conducted, then two levels should be noted here - state and corporate. It all depends on who the customer is. In the first case, we are talking about ministries, and in the second - about private structures. These studies are distinguished by a high level of objectivity, since scientometric databases are characterized by a transparent system of calculations. For example, the Scopus database and the patent database are integrated. Due to this, coverage of a large amount of information for analytics is achieved.

Private universities care about their rankings no less, and sometimes even more than public ones. This is natural, since there is high competition in this educational segment. It is important for each educational institution to prove to students and their parents that it is the best choice for education.
So, who is in the TOP-3 in the ranking of universities in Ukraine according to Scopus among private universities? The first position is occupied by the Kyiv School of Economics, although in the consolidated TOP-200 rating for Ukraine, which takes into account different indicators, it occupies the 5th position. In second place is IAPM, which is the leader in Ukraine. The third place is taken by the Lviv University of Trade and Economics, which is 1 position higher in the data for Ukraine. Thus, the Scopus ranking largely converges with the consolidated national ranking.
|Place||Name of higher education institution||ТОП 200||Scopus||final|
|1||Interregional Academy of Personnel Management||72||76||194|
|2||Lviv Trade and Economic University||100||96||239|
|3||Alfred Nobel University||98||133||283|
|4||International Humanitarian University||148||115||295|
|5||Kyiv School of Economics||86||68||325|
If we talk about what has changed in this ranking of state universities over the past year, then the TOP-3 leaders have remained unchanged. Moreover, their positions in the h-index only strengthened.
The composition of the top ten has also changed. The Donetsk National Medical University dropped out of it, and the Carpathian National University named after. V. Stefanik, since educational institutions have changed places.
This ranking includes 31 thousand universities from all over the world, more than 300 - Ukrainian. The rating is published in January of each year. In some aspects, it echoes the Scopus rating, but, nevertheless, there are significant differences.
|Place||Name of higher education institution|
|1||Kyiv National University. T. Shevchenko|
|2||NTU "Kyiv Polytechnic Institute"|

Despite the difficult year 2022 for Ukraine, the higher educational institutions of our country continue to work and make their active contribution to the life of world science. This is evidenced by the high positions of universities in the h-index. Both the teaching staff and students are working to ensure that Ukrainian science is not aloof from the global context and is adequately represented in authoritative scientometric publications databases.
