Globalization and increased competition Transparency on quality and output requested by stakeholders Planning and organizational development Incentives and resource allocation Communication and marketing Increased data availability more applications requested just because it s possible 13 maj

5 Rankings often play a paradoxical role how are they percepted in different target groups? Target groups Students the most frequent readers Deliveries In general - poor education indicators Scientists don t use rankings Research indicators dominate rankings Opinion makers use simple numbers Multi-indicators, field tables Publicerad : 2 oktober 2013 Allra högst rankat av de skandinaviska universiteten är Karolinska Institutet, som dessutom klättrar från plats 42 till 36 i årets rankning.. Men de allra viktigaste jämförelserna för oss är de som analyserar medicinska universitet, universitet med samma uppdrag som vi har säger Anders Hamsten. 13 maj

8 Different methodologies different results!? Indicators and Weights for ARWU Criteria Indicator Code Weight Quality of Education Alumni of an institution winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals Alumni 10% Quality of Faculty Staff of an institution winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals Highly cited researchers in 21 broad subject categories Award 20% HiCi 20% Papers published in Nature and Science* N&S 20% Research Output Papers indexed in Science Citation Index-expanded and Social Science Citation Index PUB 20% QS subject tables - weights Per Capita Performance Per capita academic performance of an institution PCP 10% Total 100% * For institutions specialized in humanities and social sciences such as London School of Economics, N&S is not considered, and the weight of N&S is relocated to other indicators. Bibliometrics Reputation surveys Efficiency Ratios Awards 13 maj

Ranking positions are vulnerable Total index score of European top15 Universities ARWU 80 73,6 Total Index Score ,7 43,7 42,6 41,7? 32,9 32, ,8 31,4 31,3 31, , Univ Cambridge Univ Oxford Imperial Coll London Univ Coll London Swiss Fed Inst Tech - Zurich Univ Utrecht Karolinska Inst Stockholm Univ Paris 06 Univ Edinburgh Univ Munich Tech Univ Munich Univ Manchester Source: Institute of Higher Education, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), 2005 Univ Copenhagen Univ Zurich Uppsala Univ 13 maj

10 Linear ranking order or die tossing within tiers of equals? THE total ranking all categories 13 maj

11 Rankings based entirely on reputation are of little value Regarding the impact of reputation-based rankings, as the reputation-based score dwindles rapidly from the first top-ranked university down to the 50th, the reputation indicators have a very limited impact on the THE World University Ranking. This implies that rankings based entirely on reputation are of little value. The very steep reputation-based curve means that the influence of reputation is substantial for the first few most highly ranked institutions but quickly decreases in significance thereafter. Source: Andrejs Rauhvargers: Global university rankings and their impact, EUA maj

13 Can we use ranking tables as proof of long term progress? 13 maj

14 Can uncompounded indicators tell us more? 13 maj
