The Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities 2015, also known as the National Taiwan University Ranking evaluates the performance of scientific papers of the top 500 universities worldwide. It is based entirely on statistics that reflect three major performance criteria; research productivity, research impact, and research excellence.

This accolade follows global recognition earlier this year when the University was ranked in the top 100 universities in the world for clinical medicine and pharmacy and life and agriculture sciences in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as the Shanghai Ranking.
