Every year, based on several factors and indications, world universities are ranked by several organizations and publications such as Times Higher Education (THE), Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU or Shanghai Ranking), Quacquarelli Symonds (Q.S.), U.S. News and World Report (USNWR), and many more.
The Times Higher Education (THE), a British magazine, World University Rankings 2022 publication, is based on the analysis of more than 108 million documents (citations) across over 14.4 million research publications. It also included survey answers from about 22,000 scholars worldwide. Overall, THE collected 430,000 data points from more than 2,100 institutions that submitted data.
