  • Research: five indicators, including a researcher survey (30%)
  • Citations: average number of citations per article (30%)
  • Industry income per researcher (2.5%)

Until 2009, Times Higher Education co-published the THE-QS university ranking with Quacquarelli Symonds, a company specialising in education and study abroad.
