Five components were used to rank universities including academic reputation, employer reputation research citations per paper, H-index, and international research network. The h-index is a way of measuring both the productivity and impact of the published work of a scientist or scholar. Responses were drawn from over 1,30,000 academics worldwide, the QS said.
