My Rank QS Rank QS Rank School Name Country QS Stars Rating Overall
Academic Reputation
The Academic Reputation Index is the centrepiece of the QS World University Rankings® carrying a weighting of 40%. It is an approach to international university evaluation that QS pioneered in 2004 and is the component that attracts the greatest interest and scrutiny. In concert with the Employer Reputation Index it is the aspect which sets this ranking most clearly apart from any other.
Employer Reputation
The QS Global Employer Survey has seen a dramatic increase in response in 2012 from 17,000 in 2011 to over 25,500 in 2012. Growth has been seen worldwide but nowhere more profoundly than in Latin America, where a campaign conducted in Spanish met with great success. Responses are closely scrutinized and weighted to eliminate biases that may result from disproportionate response levels.
Citations Per Paper
Citations per Paper focuses on the performance of the papers an institution produces that are actually indexed in Scopus – ignoring efforts undertaken resulting in publication in local language journals that may not be covered by Scopus. A publication threshold of 100 papers is applied to eliminate anomalous low numbers of papers from overly benefiting small institutions.
