Our rankings methodology
The data behind our rankings is based on institutional data submitted via our portal, the Academic Reputation Survey and Scopus data provided by the 12.1 million papers in the Elsevier database. This data forms the 13 metrics that feed into the 5 pillars of the rankings to give you an accurate and credible picture of your global performance. This data can be used to build a better understanding of your institution and its peers – potential partners or competitors – that you want to compare with in a global context. The THE World University Rankings have expanded to include approximately 1,000 institutions this year. We are committed to increasing our global view year on year to ensure our Rankings remain the most complete in the world.
