World University Rankings blog: your invitation to shape the 2016-17 rankings results

Follow on Twitter as @Phil_Baty
Phil Baty,editor at large of Times Higher Education magazine and editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings inform, "Academics from across the world are being invited to help Times Higher Education develop unique new insights into the global teaching and research landscape – shaping the results of the World University Rankings and providing $10,000 for education charities in the process."

THE today launched its 2016 Academic Reputation Survey, which asks published scholars to outline which institutions they perceive to be the best (both in their country and worldwide), for teaching and research in their specialist discipline. Each respondent will be representing many of their peers from their fields and their country. 

The survey results will make up two of the 13 performance indicators used to create the THE World University Rankings, and related regional rankings, and will form the basis of the separate THE World Reputation Rankings. As well as informing the rankings, the data will also help THE to provide detailed analytical insights into the academic prestige of institutions across countries, regions and disciplines. 

For each survey completed, THE will donate $1 to charity, up to a total value of $10,000. The charities respondents will be supporting are Camfed, STIR and United World Schools, all educational charities supporting developing world countries. 

The data will, of course, be based purely on subjective judgement. But it will be the subjective judgement of those best placed to understand excellence in teaching and research - academics themselves. And reputation is a powerful currency in global higher education, influencing an institution’s ability to attract talent, philanthropic donations and business investment. 

The data can provide rich and unique insights into the strength of teaching and research beyond simple metrics linked, for example, to research publications or graduate outcomes.
