University and research ranking systems
Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU)
Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as Shanghai Ranking, is one of the annual publications of world university rankings. The league table was originally compiled and issued by Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2003, making it one of the the first global university ranking systems. The publication currently includes global league tables for institutions and a whole and for a selection of individual subjects. ARWU is regarded as one of the three most influential and widely observed university rankings, alongside QS World University Rankings and Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Times Higher Education (THE) Rankings
Times Higher Education (THE) Rankings –is an annual University ranking published by the British Times Higher Education magazine.
