Shanghai, November 4, 2009.The Center for World-Class Universities of Shanghai Jiao Tong University released the 2009 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) at the Third International Conference on World- Class Universities held in Shanghai from Nov 2-4. The rankings identify the leading 500 universities around the world and are widely referenced by the global university community.

    Since its first release in June 2003, ARWU has generated a global following for its transparent and consistent ranking methodology. Prof. LIU Nian Cai, the founder of ARWU, explained: Historically, academic performance, prestige and standing vis-à-vis other institutions have always been amongst the foremost concerns of leading universities. National governments are taking specific measures to promote and support the creation of world-class universities. ARWU has been widely cited and employed as a starting point for identifying national strengths and weaknesses as well as facilitating reform and setting up new initiatives.
    "Objectivity, transparency, accuracy and consistency are key to any successful ranking," said Dr. CHENG Ying, who currently plays a major role in ARWU development. Dr. Cheng continued, "in addition to the overall and broad subject field rankings, we introduced subject rankings for the first time. The subjects for the 2009 ranking are chemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, and physics".
    Starting from 2009, the ARWU has been published by ShanghaiRanking Consultancy. Besides ARWU, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy will provide various global comparisons and in-depth analyses of research universities that support relevant decision making by national governments and universities in a global context.
    The rankings are updated annually. A complete list of the rankings can be found at the Academic Ranking of World Universities website at http://www.arwu.org/.
