Editor's note: October 2020

After the publication of the World University Rankings 2021, National Research Nuclear University MEPhI informed us that they had submitted, and signed off, incorrect academic staff, international academic staff, student and international student numbers in Life Sciences and Physical Sciences in THE’s data portal. This matter was reviewed under our corrections policy, and we agreed, at our discretion, to re-calculate MEPhI’s score based on a corrected data submission. The revision has not affected the university’s ranking position overall. The university’s corrected position in the Physical Sciences subject ranking is 98.

After the publication of the World University Rankings 2021, we were informed that an affiliation had been incorrectly assigned in the Elsevier bibliometric profile of Government College Women University Faisalabad, resulting in their inclusion in the ranking. After recalculating the publication count based on the correct affiliations, Government College Women University Faisalabad did not reach the publication threshold and therefore should not have been included in the World University Rankings. This matter was reviewed under our corrections policy and we have removed the institution from the ranking.

As per THE's rankings correction policy, the amendment made only affects the university in question. We do not rerun the complete ranking. All other universities maintain their original rank.

Editor's note: September 2020

After the ranking production was finalised over the summer of 2020, an erroneous data point was discovered for East China Normal University.

The university’s corrected position in the overall World University Rankings is in the 351-400 band.

After the publication of the World University Rankings 2021, Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz informed us that they had submitted, and signed off, incorrect income numbers into THE’s data portal. This matter was reviewed under our corrections policy, and we agreed, at our discretion, to re-calculate Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz’s score based on a corrected data submission. The revision has not affected the university’s position overall. 

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. All other universities maintain their original rank.
