The University of Sydney has placed 34th in the world in the latest US News Best Global Universities rankings.
The excellent result sees the university move from 45th place last year and maintain its second position in the national rankings.
“The university’s high-quality research is the main reason for our continuing success in these prestigious rankings. It reflects our ongoing commitment to being a leading comprehensive, research-intensive university in Australia and the world,” said Dr Michael Spence, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sydney.
Professor Duncan Ivison, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) said, “Our Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Public Health and Clinical Medicine research excelled in this year’s rankings.”
For example, Professor Pippa Norris, ARC Laureate Fellow and Professor of Government and International Relations, has led a global Electoral Integrity Project which has recently compared 241 parliamentary and presidential elections in 158 countries around the world.
“Not only has her team’s work resulted in a large number of high-quality publications, but has also generated an enormous amount of media and public attention at a time when electoral systems are under increasing scrutiny around the world,” Professor Ivison said.
Another timely example is the recent report by Associate Professor Philip Alpers, from the Sydney School of Public Health, whose research findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association, showed that while gun deaths have declined since Australia’s gun reforms, no state or territory fully complies with the laws.
The US News Best Global rankings were established in 2014 use Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science database, formerly known as Thomson-Reuters, to rank the top 1,250 institutions globally (increased from 1,000 last year). Factors such as reputation, publications, books, conferences, international collaboration and citations are considered.
Internationally Harvard University is the top ranked institution.
