The 2016-2017 Times Higher Education World University Rankings' computer science table judges world class universities across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook. The ranking includes a wide range of narrower subject areas.The subject tables employ the same range of 13 performance indicators used in the overall World University Rankings, brought together with scores provided under five categories. However, the overall methodology is carefully recalibrated for each subject, with the weightings changed to suit the individual fields.The weightings for the computer science ranking are:Teaching: the learning environment - 30 per cent;Research: volume, income, and reputation - 30 per cent;Citations: research influence - 27.5 per cent;International outlook: staff, students and research - 7.5 per cent;Industry income: innovation - 5 per cent.No institution can be included in the overall World University Rankings unless it has published a minimum of 200 research papers a year over the five years.For the eight subject tables, the threshold drops to 100 papers a year for subjects that generate a high volume of publications and 50 a year in subjects such as social sciences where the volume tends to be lower. An institution is generally expected to have at least 10 per cent of its staff working in the relevant discipline in order to be included in the subject table.
