The move into the the global ranking market has involved some adjustment to their ranking criteria with the following measurements being used:

Source: Global research reputationUS News ranking of universities outside the United States (opens in new window)

* 12.5% Regional research reputation

* 12.5% Publications

* 10% Normalized citation impact

* 10% Total citations

* 12.5% Number of publications that are among the 10 percent most cited

* 10% Percentage of total publications that are among the 10 percent most cited

* 10% International collaboration

* 5% Number of Ph.D.s awarded

* 5% Number of Ph.D.s awarded per academic staff member

This range of measurements appears reasonably comprehensive and the publication of the results has been welcomed by an audience which appears to have an insatiable appetite for these types of world university ranking systems.
