The purpose of "IREG Inventory of International Rankings" is to collect and make available on the IREG Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence website information on the current state and scope of this important group of rankings.
IREG Observatory initiated the “IREG Inventory of International Rankings" project as a part of its statutory mission with an aim to foster the quality of academic rankings and the quality of higher education in general.
The data for the Inventory has been collected through a “questionnaire” sent to the publishers of international and regional rankings. The information on collection of data for the inventory has been also posted on the IREG Observatory website and sent to over 3,000 institutions, members of the academic community and experts on higher education all over the world. The information on the rankings in the “Inventory” is based on answers to the questionnaire and data collected by Perspektywy Education Foundation.
The Inventory include only those rankings that were published at least twice. The authors of the Inventory do not recognized as independent, self-standing regional rankings generated by application of a regional filter to the main global ranking.
The Inventory of International Rankings has been prepared for IREG Observatory by the Perspektywy Education Foundation.
Authors of new international university rankings who want to be included into the Inventory are kindly requested to fill in the questionnaire ("Add your ranking" section).
