This year, 1.300 universities have been ranked by ARWU and the best 800 are now published. ARWU adopts six objective indicators to rank world universities, including the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, the number of Highly Cited Researchers, the number of articles published in journals Nature and Science, the number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index – Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index, and per capita performance.

ARWU has been recognised as the precursor of global university rankings and the most trustworthy league table.
