To create the global rankings, which are based on data and metrics provided by Clarivate, US News uses a methodology that focuses on factors that measure research performance. Indicators for the overall ranking include indicators that measure the university’s global and regional reputation and academic research output using bibliometric indicators such as citations and publications.

For subject-specific rankings, US News uses a separate methodology based on the results of academic research in each subject. These subject ratings do not include academic fields, departments, or specific schools within the university, such as business or medical school. US News uses various bibliometric measures, including publications and citations, as well as indicators of global and regional reputation in each specific subject area.
