Stockholm University continues to build on this foundation as an open, innovative, and dynamic university. The University should maintain fundamental academic values. Academic freedom should be protected. In a changing and globalised world, the University should contribute to a sustainable democratic society with a long-term vision, based on a solid scientific foundation that evolves constantly through the search for new knowledge.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
