Among the four ranking criteria, BVU is one of the universities with the best Openness ranking in Vietnam (8602). This criterion is calculated based on 10 BVU's scientists records with the largest number of citations in the Google Scholar application. This is the result of the continuous efforts of BVU staff and teachers contributing to the world academic community on Google Scholar. In addition, the Excellence index (Top 10% of articles published by the University's lecturers and scientists in the Scopus list of the most cited scientific journals) increased by 108 places, outperformed compared to 2018.

Regarding the ranking method in 2019, Webometrics has adjusted the weight of the ranking criteria, the weight of the website size scale (Presence) reduced to 5% (previous evaluation 10%) and the Excellence assessing the quality of scientific publication based on the Scopus database (a bibliographic database containing summaries of scientific articles), increasing from 30% to 35%. This adjustment of Webometrics is intended to increase the level of academic quality assessment of higher education institutions.
