SHANGAI RANKING

The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as the Shanghai ranking, was the first ranking to compare performance of universities worldwide. This ranking ranks 1000 universities worldwide that score best on a set of indicators. These indicators are mainly related to prestigious research activities and absolute research output, i.e. the number of alumni winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, the number of staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, the number of Highly Cited Researchers, number of papers published in Nature and Science, number of papers in Web of Science, and the weighted scores of the above five indicators divided by the number of full-time equivalent academic staff.
The Shanghai ranking yearly publishes a  main ranking, i.e. the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) and about 54 discipline-specific subrankings.
