Editor's note: December 2019

After the ranking release in September 2019, we were informed that an affiliation had been incorrectly assigned in the Elsevier bibliometric profile of Ibn Tofaïl University, resulting in their exclusion from the rankings as they did not meet the 1,000 publication threshold. After incorporating the missing affiliation and recalculating the publication count, Ibn Tofaïl University reached the publication threshold and therefore met the criteria to be included in the World University Rankings. This matter was reviewed under our corrections policy, and we have agreed to include Ibn Tofaïl University in the World University Rankings 2020.

As per THE's rankings correction policy, where an amendment is made, the relevant institution is retrospectively listed in its correct position. We do not rerun the complete ranking and we only amend when a change is positive. All other universities maintain their original rank.


Editor’s note: September 2019 

After the ranking production was finalised over the summer of 2019, the University of Haifa informed us that they had submitted, and signed off, incorrect academic staff and student numbers into THE’s data portal. This matter was reviewed under our corrections policy, and we agreed, at our discretion, to re-calculate the University of Haifa’s score based on a corrected data submission. The revision has not affected the university’s position, which remains in the same ranking band (501–600).

As per THE's rankings correction policy, where an amendment is made, the relevant institution is retrospectively listed in its correct position. We do not rerun the complete ranking and we only amend when a change is positive. All other universities maintain their original rank.

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

I find it very odd and even bizarre that UT Southwestern does not even appear in any of the rankings. Merely perhaps because it trains no undergraduates? One would surmise that 6 Nobel Laureates and a consistently top ranking medical school in the US (in other rankings) would mean something to THE?

Have your say
