In 2009, Shanghai Ranking first published university world rankings by academic subject. With the introduction of the improved methodology, the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS) was published in 2017. GRAS 2021 compares higher education institutions in a total of 54 subjects in the fields of natural sciences, engineering, life sciences, medicine and social sciences. Out of the 4,000 universities surveyed in 93 countries, more than 1,800 will eventually be ranked.
The GRAS ranking uses a number of objective scientific indicators and third-party data to measure the performance of universities in a given subject: Q1 research output (Q1), research impact (CNCI), international collaboration (IC), research quality (TOP ) and international scientific awards (AWARDs). The International Science Awards Index is based on the Academic Excellence Survey (AES) conducted by Shanghai Ranking since 2017. By February 2021, more than 1,000 professors from the world’s leading universities had participated in the survey.
The physics ranking is led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States, while the ecology list is led by the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.
