Picture of the Week: Monash's amazing trajectory

2015-2016 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings
By Kim Langfield-Smith

The 2015-2016 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings were released 1 October 2015. Monash University is now ranked at 73, which is a 10 place improvement on the 2014 ranking.  We remain 5th nationally.

The graph above shows Monash's steady rise, from being ranked 178 in 2010 to 73 in 2015.

Monash has improved across all indicators. Our areas of highest improvement in 2015 are International Outlook (due to a great percentage of international co-authorships), followed closely by Citations and then Industry Income. 

While there have been some methodology changes in this year’s rankings, and for the first time Scopus has been used to source bibliometric data (rather than Thomson Reuter’s Web of Science), the outstanding results point to significant improvements flowing in particular from our improved research performance.

THE also has subject rankings and these will be released gradually over a month from 14 October.
