Since 2007, the HEEACT, the Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan has been offering a world ranking of the 500 best universities based solely on scientific publications.

The classification includes eight indicators, divided into three criteria:

- Research productivity (20% of the score): number of articles published over the last 11 years (1999-2009) and number of articles published in 2009;

- Impact of research (30%): number of citations over the past 11 years, the number of citations during the last two years (2008-2009), average number of citations over the past 11 years;

- Research excellence (50%): h-index of the last two years, a number of publications cited in prestigious journals, many articles in the current year in high impact journals.
