Editor’s note: 16 March 2018

The University of Naples Federico II was initially excluded from the THE 2018 World University Rankings on the basis that it did not provide sufficient data prior to the submission deadline. Following discussions with the THE data team and, having subsequently provided a comprehensive data submission, an editorial decision was taken to retrospectively include the university in the overall rankings. It is now positioned within the 401-500 band.
