Criteria

Five factors are considered by QS when compiling the World University Subject Rankings. These are the ones I’d like to point out:

  • Academic reputation
  • Employer reputation
  • Research citations per paper
  • H-index
  • International Research Network

First, international surveys of academics and employers are used to determine the international reputation of institutions in each subject.

Second, the h-index and research impact are evaluated using the second two indicators. H-index is also used to measure research impact and productivity for those who aren’t aware of it. Using data from Scopus, the world’s most comprehensive research citations database, we calculate these indicators.
