The QS World University Rankings portfolio, inaugurated in 2004, has grown to become the world?s most popular source of comparative data about university performance. QS is an annual publication of university rankings which comprises the global overall and subject rankings which name the world?s top universities for the study of 48 different subjects and five composite faculty areas (natural sciences, engineering and technology, biological and medical sciences, social sciences, humanities and the arts), alongside its independent regional tables (such as Asia, Latin America, Emerging Europe and Central Asia and the Arab Region). QS uses a number of academic indicators by which to measure institutions, depending on the specific ranking in question. These include:

  • Academic Reputation ? A score based on the reputation of an institution.
  • H Index ? An index that attempts to measure both the productivity and impact of the published work of a scientist or scholar.
  • Citations per Faculty ? Citations, evaluated in some fashion to take into account the size of institution, are the best understood and most widely accepted measure of research strength.
  • Staff with PhDs ? The indicator is based on a simple proportion of each institution that hold a PhD or equivalent terminal degree.
