The U21 Rankings of National Higher Education Systems: Re-Analyze to Optimize
Cheng, Soh Kay
European Journal of Higher Education, v2 n2-3 p205-217 2012
"The U21 Ranking of National Higher Education Systems" released in May 2012 is a new player on the scene of university rankings, after ARWU, QSWUR and THEWUR, but with a different perspective--that of whole nations. It has some new features that enhance its validity, but it also shares some of the conceptual and methodological problems found in earlier systems; these are illustrated by re-analyzing the data. Possible directions for refinement are suggested and discussed.
