Bibliometrics and ranking

Bibliometrics can be defined as the quantitative study of publication collections and is used as an integral part of KTH's quality work. Bibliometric data also provides input to the various rankings performed at the international level, and is thus an important instrument for KTH's relevance to the outside world.

KTH Library performs bibliometric analyses on behalf of KTH's management. We also handle and administer KTH's internal work with ranking. Read more on the pages Ranking placement for KTH  and Ranking .
