KI strengthens position in the 2021 Shanghai ranking
In the overall, annual ranking of the world universities in ARWU (Academic Ranking of World Universities – also called the Shanghai ranking), published in mid-August, Karolinska Institutet ranks at position 42 (45 the year before).
Harvard University is at the top position as earlier years. KI's Nordic neighbors Copenhagen, Aarhus, Oslo, Stockholm and Uppsala universities are also in the top 100. In Europe, KI is at position 12 and within the EU, position 5. ARWU is based, among other things, on publication and citation data and scientific prices.
Earlier this year (May), ARWU subject rankings were published where KI has several advanced positions, including global top-10 positions in Public Health, Nursing and Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, position 16 in Biological Sciences and 31 in Clinical Medicine.
