Evaluation for the first Russian university rating was carried out according to twenty indicators, combined into four groups. At the same time, indicators of the quality of teaching and research gave the university more rating points than other groups.

The analysis of higher education institutions in 31 regions of Russia has showed that the largest number of advanced universities are located in Moscow (20 universities in the ranking), St. Petersburg, Ufa and Kazan. At the same time, Tomsk, which turned out to be represented in the top 10 Russian universities by two universities at once, was not among the leading cities. The university from Novosibirsk was also among the ten best universities in the country.
