100 Best universities for Mathematics in China

Below is the list of best universities in China ranked based on their research performance in Mathematics. A graph of 2.54M citations received by 305K academic papers made by 477 universities in China was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
