Analyzing the activities of visitors of the Leiden Ranking website

04/11/2018 ∙ by Nees Jan van Eck, et al. ∙ 0

The CWTS Leiden Ranking (www.leidenranking.com) provides bibliometric indicators for almost 1000 major universities worldwide. We present a detailed analysis of the activities of visitors of the Leiden Ranking website. We for instance study the countries from which visitors originate, the specific pages on the Leiden Ranking website that they visit, the countries or the universities that they find of special interest, and the indicators that they focus on. In addition, we also discuss two experiments that were carried out on the Leiden Ranking website. Our analysis aims to contribute to a better understanding of the way in which university rankings are used. We also intend to use the analysis to make improvements to the Leiden Ranking.
