International science ranking puts U of T at 7th in the world
Posted on October 19, 2012

TORONTO, ON – The University of Toronto’s academic and research performance ranks 7th in the world – and the best in Canada – in a prestigious international ranking released this week that measures strength in science disciplines.

The National Taiwan University (NTU) ranking (formerly the Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan — HEEACT ranking) assesses the research productivity, impact and excellence of published scientific papers of 500 universities around the world.

NTU included four other Canadian universities among the top 100 using a methodology that includes eight indicators and represents three different criteria of scientific performance: research productivity; research impact; and research excellence.

The University of Toronto also earned the highest possible marks from Research Infosource Inc. – for the 6th year in a row – in its annual rankings of the best Canadian research universities of 2012.

U of T placed first overall in the Medical/Doctoral category once again in this year’s results. The ranking is determined by several criteria, including the amount of research a university published in a given year as well as the level of funding generated for that research.
