In order to replicate the results of the University Metaranking-2016 (Andronesi…David et al., 2016) regarding the position of Romanian universities in international rankings (based on quintilles), we ranked Romanian universities based on their position in various academic international ranking of universities (based on deciles). Starting from the University Metaranking-2016 exercise, we included in our analysis the following international rankings: Academic Ranking of World Universities/ARWO; (2) Center for World University Rankings/CWUR; (3) Leiden Ranking/CWTS; (4) Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers of World Universities/PRSPWU; (5) QS-Top Universities Ranking/QS; (6) Scimago Institutions Ranking/Scimago; (7) Times Higher Education–World University Rankings/THE; (8) University Ranking by Academic Performance/URAP; (9) World’s Best Universities Rankings/US-News. Out of about 92 Romanian universities (55-public universities and 37-private universities), 20 universities (all public universities) are visible in the University Metaranking G3A-2016. The top three (3) universities in the University Metaranking G3A-2016 are: (1) Babeş-Bolyai University; (2) University of Bucharest, and (3) Bucharest Politehnic University. In conclusion, switching from considering quintilles to deciles did not essentially change the metarankings of the Romanian universities.
