Articles: Articles from scholarly journals. Using the peer-review facet in the left menu you will limit to articles reviewed by experts in the field.
E-books and printed books: Online books in full text as well as print books. Please note that theses are not found using this filter.
Printed books: Make a request if the book is currently on loan or if you want to collect it at a different branch library.
E-journals: Enter words from the title of the journal to get to the list of e-journals.
Databases: Enter words from the database title or subject area to get to the list of List of databases. Use English terms. Databases often cover large areas and the search terms therefore need to be broad, for example Physics.

QS World University Ranking
QS Ltd. publishes this yearly list which bases its scores on a mix of surveys and quantitative data. Prior to 2010, the list was a joint venture with Times Higher Education (THE). The publication data comes from Scopus.
About the list
QS World University Ranking is broader and more current than for example the Shanghai list. Half of the indicators are based on surveys and the other half quantitative data. Universities with broad educational offerings normally score higher than specialized ones.

QS World University Rankings by Subject
Since 2011, QS also publishes subject specific rankings. These rankings include four indicators: Academic reputation, Employer reputation and Citations per publication and h-index. The percentages between the various subjects vary. Chemistry and Physics can consist of following 40/20/20/20%, whereas within the fields of the technology the combination of 40/30/15/15% is common. The method for the 2012 ranking changed, so it is difficult to compare to the previous year’s result. The subject specific rankings are published in the spring, but are based on data collected for the broader list collected in autumn.
|Computer science & Information Systems||101-150||151-200|
|Physics & Astronomy||101-150||101-150|
|Statistics & Operational Research||101-150||101-150|
[Rankings are based on the value of the indicators. Rankings lower than 50 are displayed in blocks of 50].
QS World University Rankings by Faculty
Since 2013, QS also publishes i new faculty ranking for 5 facutly areas. The indicators are the same as in the subject rankings. Chalmers University or Technology is represented in two areas: Engineering & Technology (indicator weights 40/30/15/15%) och Natural Sciences (indicator weights 40/20/20/20%).
