Times Higher Education Academic Reputation Survey 2017
Leading academics from across the world are being invited to help Times Higher Education (THE) develop unique new insights into the global teaching and research landscape by highlighting the most prestigious institutions in their field.
THE has launched its 2017 Academic Reputation Survey, which asks published scholars to outline which universities they perceive to be the best for teaching and research in their specialist discipline.
Each respondent is asked to identify institutions worldwide and in their own country and will be representing many of their peers from their fields and their nation.
The survey results will make up two of the 13 performance indicators used to create the THE World University Rankings 2017-18, and related regional rankings, and will form the basis of the “THE World Reputation Rankings”.
The survey, run in partnership with Elsevier, is invitation-only to ensure a representative statistical sample. It is available in 15 languages, and to ensure a fair and balanced response, it is distributed using United Nations data on the geographical distribution of researchers globally. Universities cannot nominate respondents and individuals are not able to volunteer to take part.
