The percentage of international joint publications reflects the degree to which a university's research is connected to international research networks. The top performers all have a least 75 per cent of their pulications publishd with co-authors from abroad.

The list of the 25 top performers does not include any US universities; their major partners in research cooperation are mostly other US universities. The list is characterised by a diversity of countries; higher education institutions from 16 different countries are represented; the biggest single number from the UK (6). Arab countries are represented with 7 universities among the top performers. The list includes some higher education institutions from small countries (e.g., Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, Moldova and Iceland) which do not have a large number of potential collaborators within their country.
