Clarivate Analytics remains exclusive bibliometric data provider to ShanghaiRanking Consultancy's 2017 world university ranking
- 15 Aug 2017

Clarivate Analytics, the global provider of trusted insights and analytics to enable the research ecosystem to accelerate discovery, delivers exclusive bibliometric data for the ShanghaiRanking Consultancy's 2017 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), one of the longest established and most influential rankings.

Using data from the Clarivate Analytics Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) since 2003, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy draws on unbiased data to measure educational and research performance at each institution. Each year the ranking is applied to over 1,000 universities, but only a subset make the list. For the first time this year, the ranking lists 800 universities, up from 500 last year, giving visibility to 300 more institutions.

Rankings are an important indicator of the progress institutions are making to improve research performance, and they provide visibility to funders, policy-makers and governments supporting research quality and impact.

Considered one of the most balanced and influential rankings in the world due to its academic rigor, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy's (formerly Shanghai Jiao Tong University) annual ranking is based on six objective indicators, including articles indexed in SCIE and SSCI - a network of citations underpinning significant research, as well as Highly Cited Researchers data, representing some of the world's most influential minds as determined by a citation analysis of Web of Science data. These form key components of the ARWU methodology.
