Google Scholar Citations recently introduced the institutional profiles for providing rankings of scientists who shared the same standardized name and email address of an institution.
According to a statement on the Webometrics website, the ranking is an experiment for testing the suitability of including GSC institutional profiles data in the Rankings Web, but it is still in beta as there are many shortcomings that should be solved in future editions.
In the methodology only institutional profiles are chosen, data from the top 10 public profiles of each university are collected and the head of the list is excluded for improving representativeness. The figures are valid only at the time of collection.
