Global ranking indexes measure university performances in terms of criteria such as education, resarch, publication and internationalization. While the dicsussion on the role of global ranking indexes in determining the quality of higher education is going on in the academia, such indexes have started to be taken into account seriously by the public opinion. The leading university ranking indexes share the rankings of world universities that are mostly ranked in terms of a single score based on predetermined criteria, indicators measuring the criteria, and the associated weights of the indicators annually with their stakeholders. While understanding how employed criteria and differences in methodologies influence the actual rankings has been an issue, Turkish universities' placements in such rankings make another avenue for research. This study explores Turkish universities that take place in the leading indexes including THE World, QS World, ARWU, and URAP during 2011 and 2015, their similar and different aspects, and the changes in the rankings over the given time period. Factors such as size of the university, being a state or foundation university, existence of the medical school, and long established reputation play a role in Turkish universities' placements in leading international indexes.
