Abstract We use the directed networks between articles of 24 Wikipedia language editions for producing the wikipedia ranking of world Universities (WRWU) using PageRank, 2DRank and CheiRank algorithms. This approach allows to incorporate various cultural views on world universities using the mathematical statistical analysis independent of cultural preferences. The Wikipedia ranking of top 100 universities provides about 60% overlap with the Shanghai university ranking demonstrating the… Expand
World influence and interactions of universities from Wikipedia networks
TLDR
It is shown that the new reduced Google matrix algorithm allows to determine interactions between leading universities on a scale of ten centuries and this approach also determines the influence of specific universities on world countries. Expand
Mining the World University Rankings from Wikipedia
Global university rankings have played a growing role in the competition for status which has become one of the important evaluation conditions of higher education quality. At present, the evaluationExpand
Wikiometrics: a Wikipedia based ranking system
TLDR
An innovative “mining” methodology is demonstrated, where different elements of Wikipedia are used to rank items in a manner which is by no means inferior to rankings produced by experts or other methods. Expand
PageRank on Wikipedia: Towards General Importance Scores for Entities
TLDR
This work focuses on the question whether some links—based on their context/position in the article text—can be deemed more important than others and presents different PageRank-based analyses on the link graph of Wikipedia and according experiments. Expand
Multi-cultural Wikipedia mining of geopolitics interactions leveraging reduced Google matrix analysis
TLDR
This work mines herein the Wikipedia networks of several language editions using the recently proposed method of reduced Google matrix analysis, and demonstrates that this approach allows to recover meaningful direct and hidden links among the 40 countries of interest. Expand
Wikipedia mining of hidden links between political leaders
TLDR
It is argued that the reduced Google matrix method can form the mathematical basis for studies in social and political sciences analyzing Leader-Members eXchange (LMX) and allows to recover reliably direct and hidden links among political leaders. Expand
Interactions of pharmaceutical companies with world countries, cancers and rare diseases from Wikipedia network analysis
TLDR
Using the English Wikipedia network of more than 5 million articles, a compact description of interactions between these articles is provided that allows us to determine the friendship networks between them, as well as the PageRank sensitivity of countries to pharmaceutical companies and rare renal diseases. Expand
Interactions of pharmaceutical companies with world countries, cancers and rare diseases from Wikipedia network analysis
TLDR
Using the English Wikipedia network of more than 5 million articles, a compact description of interactions between these articles is provided that allows us to determine the friendship networks between them, as well as the PageRank sensitivity of countries to pharmaceutical companies and rare renal diseases. Expand
Measuring the academic reputation through citation networks via PageRank
TLDR
The approach proposed in this paper may open the door to new, Academic Ranking methodologies that go beyond current methods by reconciling the qualitative evaluation of Academic Prestige with its quantitative measurements via publication impact. Expand
World Influence of Infectious Diseases from Wikipedia Network Analysis
TLDR
The reduced Google matrix method is used to determine the sensitivity of world countries to specific diseases integrating their influence over all their history including the times of ancient Egyptian mummies, demonstrating that the Wikipedia network analysis provides reliable results. Expand
