Initiative provides an insider's view of research institutions and fuels the esteemed Times Higher Education World University Rankings

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of information for businesses and professionals, today announced the launch of its 2014 Academic Reputation Survey. This is the fifth consecutive year of the survey, which is conducted to gain a clearer understanding of the global research landscape and to inform the renowned Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The survey will open on March 3 and run till the submission deadline on April 18.                                                             

The survey, which is the largest of its kind, takes a unique approach to data-gathering and analytics by directly engaging more than 300,000 academics and researchers to gain a more accurate view into the institutional research sphere. The respondents are asked to identify the institutions they consider to be the best in terms of research and teaching, in specific regions, as well as globally. Responses form a key building block, along with scholarly output, citation patterns and funding levels, for the Thomson Reuters Global Institutional Profiles database, the industry's gold-standard resource used to power the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, which are published in October.

Respondents are asked to answer questions in six subject areas: engineering and technology; physical sciences; life sciences; clinical, preclinical and health; social sciences; and, arts and humanities.

To prevent language or translation bias, the survey is offered in nine languages: Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, English, French, German, Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Spanish.

"We are pleased to continue the Academic Reputation Survey with Times Higher Education and expect to see even more participants this year as awareness of the survey spreads," said Gordon Macomber, managing director, Thomson Reuters Scientific & Scholarly Research. "This initiative is critical in providing the academic community with an honest, user-based assessment of the global research landscape. It gives academics and researchers the opportunity to highlight what they see as the strongest universities within their fields."

Thomson Reuters  InCites™, the company's customized, web-based research evaluation solution and platform in which Global Institutional Profiles resides, was designed to create data-driven profiles of research-focused universities by combining citation data from the Web of Science, the premier research platform for information in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities, with information provided by the institutions and scholarly community.
