This ranking is commonly known as the Shanghai Ranking. The ranking covers 500 universities. It provides a composite indicator of university performance, including both research performance and educational performance. In addition to bibliometric data (Web of Science), the ranking also uses data on Nobel Prize and Fields Medal winners as well as data on the number of academic staff of universities.
Like the Shanghai Ranking, this ranking offers a composite indicator of the overall performance of a university, which includes both research performance and educational performance.
