The QS World University Rankings by Subject uses four qualitative criteria to rank individual universities by subject. The first two criteria evaluate the international reputation of the university in the context of academia (academic reputation), as well as among employers (employer reputation). The other two indicators focus on the quality of academic research. The first of these last two criteria is the research citation per paper, which assesses the number of citations per teacher, published during the past 5 years, in the Scopus database. The other criterion is the h-index, which is a renowned methodological tool for assessing academic paper reviews.
