Justyna Kopańska from the International Cooperation Centre, who is an experienced expert in this field, talks about the rules of the ranking:

The ShanghaiRanking Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS) includes 54 disciplines classified in 5 fields: Natural Sciences, Medical, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, and Engineering and Technical sciences. The breakdowns into individual disciplines included a total of 1,800 universities from 93 countries. The best is Harvard University, which has been on the highest place on the podium 15 times. Massachusetts Institute of Technology has won in 6 disciplines.

ShanghaiRanking began publishing rankings by subject in 2009, but in 2017 the first publication of the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS) appeared, which was the ranking prepared according to a new methodology. Currently, the ranking methodology takes into account five criteria: the number of scientific articles, the impact of citations measured by the Category Normalized Citation Impact (CNCI) index, the percentage of publications resulting from international collaborations, the number of articles in top journals and the number of significant scientific awards.


The GRAS Ranking is created, like the ARWU Shanghai Ranking, by Shanghai Jiao Tong University. More information is available on the ranking page.
