Often individual researchers find themselves in situations where it is useful to evaluate and compare different research institutes and universities. For example, when looking for research partners, or open postdoctoral research posts, one should always look into the background of the organisation and its status.
One can evaluate and compare research institutes and universities in several different ways. Different bodies that compile and maintain different ranking lists offer search and analysis facilities through their databases; this provides extensive opportunities for evaluation and comparison.
