Times Higher Education is based on an assessment of thirteen key aspects of university work, such as the quality of teaching and research, the number of citations in scientific articles by university staff, international relations and collaboration with the business community. The criteria are the same as those used when universities are evaluated in the main list of Times Higher Education, but when it comes to young universities, the importance of reputation is reduced and more emphasis is placed on teaching, research, utilization of research and globalization.
