The ranking of the best universities in the world (Academic Ranking of World Universities, ARWU), commonly known as the Shanghai List, is compiled by Shanghai Jiao Tong University. It was first published in 2003. More than 2,500 universities are evaluated each year.

The exact place in the ranking is known only to the 100 best universities in the world. The remaining places are mentioned almost completely – universities appear in groups of 50 or 100 institutions.

The indicators assessed include, among others: the number of alumni (and staff separately) who have been awarded the Nobel Prize or the Fields Medal, the number of publications in ‘nature’ or ‘science’ journals, the number of highly cited researchers, the number of publications which are included in selected citation indexes (Science Citation Index – Expanded Social Science Citation Index).
