Among these indicators added in order to measure the research activities of universities more precisely are the number of TÜBİTAK projects, the number of joint articles with domestic universities and the number of joint articles with foreign universities.

URAP includes the evaluation as "Turkish universities have been regressing not only in the URAP world rankings but also in the world rankings of other institutions in recent years. Our universities, which can reduce the number of articles in the journals with the lowest impact value below the world average and increase the number of articles in the journals with the highest impact value above the world average, will rise to the top in the world rankings” in its press release regarding the 2022-2023 Turkey Ranking.
