Thomson Reuters Studies Institutional Reputations
The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters released its 2015 “Academic Reputation Survey” and “Exploring Scholarly Trends and Shifts Impacting the Academic Reputation of the World’s Leading Universities” report, which analyzes the key trends and shifts in global research influencing institutions’ academic standings. The survey, which is offered in nine languages, covers 65,000 academics from 6,500 universities in 105 areas of study.
Key findings include the following:
- New York University (NYU) and King’s College London experienced the greatest upswing in academic reputation
- Multidisciplinary universities tend to have a stronger general reputation than specialty institutions, but a granular approach to a subject can lead to reputational excellence within that discipline
- Regional perspectives often contrast with global perception
