The latest QS World Rankings by Subject 2020 has been released, providing foreign students with information on which universities are the best in their fields. Academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations, and H-index are used to determine the rankings.

 

According to the report, “two of the four are drawn from global surveys of academic and employer insight – indicators that underpin all QS rankings and currently draw on the expertise of over 130,000 specialists.” The academic survey asks active university experts where they are, what areas they specialize in, and which universities in the globe are the best in these fields.

 

Recruiters are asked what kind of graduates they recruit and where they normally hire their most prepared, hireable, and successful employees. The H-index is a measure of a scientist’s productivity and influence based on his or her published work. A method of assessing a scientist’s or scholar’s production as well as the influence of his or her published work The index is based on a set of the academic’s most referenced works as well as the number of citations in other publications.
