THE World University Rankings
Published from 2010 by Times Higher Education (THE) and Thomson Reuter. Earlier (2004-2009) THE cooperated with QS. That list is now continued as QS World University Rankings.
About the list
THE World University Ranking consists of 400 universities and began publishing its list in 2010. It includes 13 indicators divided into 5 groups and is considered more complex and ambitious than its competitors, Shanghai and QS. The overall goal of the ranking is to include more subject areas and normalize the difference between subjects and geographic regions. Rankings below the 200 mark are shown in blocks of 25-50. To gain full access to all information, you must download an iPhone-app.

Several methodology changes were introduced in 2010 and 2011, so the results for these years are not comparable. In 2012, the methodology was the same as in 2011.

Sub indicators, incl. % and explanations
|30%||Research||Surveys 18%; Research funding per teacher 6%; Published articles per teacher 6%|
|30%||Education||Surveys 15%, Ph.D. degrees per teacher 6%; Teacher per student 4,5%; Funding per teacher 2,25%; quota research students /undergraduate students 2,25%|
|30%||Citations||Field normalized citations, average quality on publications|
|7,5%||International mix||Share of foreign teachers 2,5%, Share of foreign students 2,5%, Share of articles with foreign co-authors 2,5%|

The most important measurements are the number of citations and the two international surveys conducted among academics. Together they amount to 2/3 of the final score.
