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.

Editor’s note: July 2020

After the release of the Latin America University Rankings 2020 it was discovered that the research and teaching pillar scores have been incorrectly displayed in the final published tables since 2016. The scores incorrectly displayed in these pillars are those based on the World University Rankings methodology and not the reweighted Latin America University Rankings methodology used to compile the rankings results.

This does not affect the data used to compile the rankings or universities’ overall scores or ranking positions.

The Latin America University Rankings tables have now been updated to display the correct scores for teaching and research.

THE is committed to transparency and accountability across all of its rankings.
