About the rankings
CWUR, now in its 11th year, assesses universities based on seven criteria, with various weightings. Education and employability are both worth 25% of the score, and academic staff is worth 10%.
Research is 40% of a university’s ranking, and is divided into four sub-sections, worth 10% each: research output, which is the total number of papers published; high-quality publications, which is how many papers are published in top-tier journals; influence, which is the number of papers published in influential journals; and citations, which measures the number of highly cited research papers.
