Four criteria are used to rank the countries. The first is the number of scientists of each University in the list of 10,000 leading scientists. The second criterion is the number of scientists in list of 100,000 with the most important research output. The third is the total number of University scientists included in scientific catalog AD Scientific Index. In the event of a tie after application of all three of these criteria, is used as the fourth criterion the highest global ranking among researchers located in first place of their Foundation.

The total values of Hindex and i10-index together with the number of citations are used, as well as the total values of Hindex and i10-index of the last 5 years together with the number of references received in the last 5 years.

Table 3 shows the position of NKUA in its individual criteria ranking. It is worthy to note that in the i10 index criterion it is in 45th place worldwide and in 8th place in Europe.
