Editor’s note: 13 February 2018
The University of the Andes, Chile, was initially excluded from the 2017 Latin America University Rankings on the basis that it did not meet our minimum research publication threshold. It emerged after publication that it did indeed meet the threshold, but that data on its true publication output had not been available to Times Higher Education at the time the data was extracted from Elsevier’s Scopus database to create the rankings, due to incomplete mapping of all of its research paper affiliations. We are happy to now include the University of the Andes, Chile, on the basis of updated bibliometric data.
