Örebro University on Shanghai ranking
Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as the Shanghai ranking, has ranked the world’s top universities since 2003. Since 2009, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy is the official publisher of the ranking.
Each year, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy ranks the top 1,000 universities in the world. The ranking is based on a number of indicators, among them research volume, number of prominent researchers, and citations.
Örebro University now places itself in the 601–700 band – a considerable step up from last year’s 801–900.
Örebro University especially distinguishes itself within the area that measures the number of highly cited researchers. Other categories where the university has improved on previous rankings is the number of papers published in the prestigious scientific journals Science and Nature, and the number of publications in journals that are listed in Web of Science.
The first time Örebro University was included in the Shanghai ranking was 2018.
