A survey on higher education published by The Economist in 2005 commented ARWU as “the most widely used annual ranking of the world’s research universities.”[6] Bollag (2006) wrote on Chronicle of Higher Education that ARWU “is considered the most influential international ranking.”[7]
.One of the factors in the significant influence of ARWU is that its methodology looks globally sound and transparent.^ We've read both a defence and critique of ARWU's methodology in one of our favourite journals, Scientometrics 1 .

EU Research Headlines reported the ARWU’s work on 31st Dec 2003: “The universities were carefully evaluated using several indicators of research performance.”[8] Chancellor of Oxford University, Prof. Chris Patten, said “the methodology looks fairly solid ... it looks like a pretty good stab at a fair comparison.” Vice-Chancellor of Australian National University, Prof. Ian Chubb, said “The SJTU rankings were reported quickly and widely around the world… (and they) offer an important comparative view of research performance and reputation.” Margison (2007) also commented the ARWU ranking that one of the strengths of “the academically rigorous and globally inclusive Jiao Tong approach” is “constantly tuning its rankings and invites open collaboration in that.”[9]
.The ARWU ranking and its content have been widely cited and applied as a starting point for identifying national strengths and weaknesses as well as facilitating reform and setting new initiatives.^ "The rankings can be a useful starting point in identifying potential colleges and universities, but many other factors determine whether a school is a good fit," Robinson says.
