THE World University Rankings
Published from 2010 by Times Higher Education (THE). Earlier (2004-2009) THE cooperated with QS. THE nowadays uses bibliometric data from Scopus.
About the list
THE World University Ranking consists of some 1000 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 200 are shown in blocks of 25-50.

Methodology changes have been introduced several times, which makes the comparisons hard. Understanding the impact of these changes calls for detailed methodological knowledge.
THE-ranking consists of 13 indicators divided into 5 groups
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%|
|2,5%||Cooperation with Industry||Research funding from the industry per teacher|
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.
