34 Understanding the QS University Rankings - Academic Reputation

35 Geographical/Cultural diversity Unbiased approach to different subjects Contemporary Relevance Reduce language bias

36 Peer Review is an indicator of the average research reputation of an institution. Good Research and Good Branding equates better academic reputation

37 The Academic Reputation Index is the centrepiece( 中 央 にある もの) of the QS World University Rankings carrying a huge weightage Previous year respondents IBIS Worldwide Academic and Library File (previously: Mardev DM2 (data division of Reed Business Information) Higher Education Database (HED) US Qualtrics panels Academic Sign-up (iu.qs.com) Institution supplied lists

38 Survey Solicitation( 誘 うもの) or Promotion It is not permitted to independently promote participation in QS surveys, nor to solicit or coach specific responses from expected respondents to any survey contributing to any QS ranking.

39 Understanding the QS University Rankings - Research

40 Scopus (last 5 years) Better quality and mix of papers(の 意 味 ) than Web of Science Over 160 more journals(subjects) than Web of Science

41

42 Rankings have many faults and do not adequately describe universities and cannot show whether one institution is better than another but I am very happy when Cambridge is rated as the top university in the world ALISON RICHARD Former Vice-Chancellor University of Cambridge

43 Understanding the QS University Rankings - What next?

44 Does QS have all your university variation( 変 化 する 事 ) names? Have you submitted your list of academic peers? Have you submitted your list of employers? Have you submitted the most accurate data? What steps are you taking to ensure outreach?
