Since 2016, the GAR World University Ranking expanded to discipline ranking and renamed as GAR World Class University and Discipline Evaluation Report. The evaluation criteria move from scientific research only to the comprehensive evaluation consisting of four criteria as shown in Table 1: teacher strength, teaching level, scientific research ability, reputation influence.

Table 1 Evaluation System of World-class Universities and Disciplines Ranking

Primary indicator Secondary indicators
Teacher Strength Number of faculty
Number of highly cited scientists
Teaching Level Number of outstanding alumni
Number of ESI discipline
Scientific Research Ability Number of paper
Number of citation for each paper
Number of international co-authored papers
Number of invention patents
Reputation Influence Web influence
Number of highly cited papers

 1)        Teacher strength

Teacher’s strength represents the talent pool of top universities, and is an important indicator to measure top universities. Full-time teachers are the backbone of top universities, which is of great significance to top universities. Highly cited scientists are the highest manifestation of teacher strength and a symbol of high quality talent.

2)        Teaching level

The teaching level is reflected by the number of outstanding alumni and the number of disciplines included in the ESI rankings. The number of outstanding alumni is also one of the most important indicators of teaching quality representing the depth of teaching level, while the number of disciplines included in the ESI rankings is measured as the breadth of the teaching level.

3)        Scientific research ability

It is measured by for minor indicators: the number of ESI papers, the citation rate of these ESI papers, the number of international co-authored papers and the number of invention patents in the past 11 years. The number of ESI papers published in the past 11 years reflects the contribution of the institution or discipline to the literature. Although the total number of citations could reflect the quality of research, the citation rate can represent the overall quality of each paper. The number of international co-authored papers can effectively reflect the degree of international collaboration. Patent is another important indicator of scientific and technological progress, which transforms the advancement of knowledge into social productivity

4)        Reputation influence

It is measured by both the web ranking and the number of highly cited papers. The web ranking represents the extent to which university publications are publicly published on the web. The higher web ranking indicates the higher impact of the institution online. In addition, the number of highly cited papers is one of the main indicators representing the reputational influence,

With the new criteria, the RCCSE and the CASEE launched 39 rankings in 5 categories in 2018, including the World National Scientific Research Competitiveness Rankings (2019), World-class University Comprehensive Competitiveness Rankings (2019), World-class University Rankings by Discipline (2019) (22 disciplines), World-class University Essential Indicator Rankings (2019) (4 indicators), World-class University Basic Indicators Rankings (2019) (10 indicators), China First-class University Competitiveness Rankings (2019) and so on. The GAR World University Ranking uses the ESI, the most authoritative and advanced indicator, as the accurate and reliable data source. It provides the most detailed evaluation report of world universities, not only at the country and institution level, but also at the level of discipline.
