More Than Our Rank

“More Than Our Rank” is an initiative from the Research Evaluation Group of the International Network of Research Management Societies (INORMS). It provides an opportunity for “universities who are proud of their ranking position but also recognize the limitations of the indicators used, and for those who feel that the rankings do not reflect their strengths or institutional mission” to show their commitment to a broader view of success than that implied in the mainstream rankings.

For example, Loughborough University, UK, has emphasised several achievements such as research that helped established the Real Living Wage, the provision of long-term industrial placements for students, an award under the Racial Equality Charter, and remarkable successes at the Olympics and Paralympics.

Among the early adopters of More Than Our Rank are U-Multirank, the European University Association, CWTS Leiden, and the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).
