Abstract: The paper is based on a comparative analysis of a joint set of Russian federal, national research and global universities (43 universities) in terms of their “Scopus” publication activity along with the Webometrics Openness and Excellence indicators (January 2018). The authors proposed a rough 5-level classification of the quality characteristics of Google Scholar Citation and Scopus profiles, studied the consistency of these characteristics across the entire sample of the universities, and carried out a regression analysis between the “Sopus” publication activity and the Openness and Excellence indicator ranks for the universities under study. The study showed that comparing these indicator ranks with the “Scopus” publication activity of the universities made it possible to see the effect of their integration into the Open Access movement.
