100 Best universities for Physics in Russia

Below is the list of best universities in Russia ranked based on their research performance in Physics. A graph of 2.15M citations received by 175K academic papers made by 132 universities in Russia 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.
