Australian universities are among the world’s top 100 (or 50 in smaller fields) in every discipline, bar one in the new Academic Ranking of World Universities subject lists
The outlier is mathematics, where UNSW drops from 76-100 in 2018 and 2019 to the 101-150 group.
However, UNSW is the top Australian institution on the top 100/50 lists in 37 of 54 subjects, ahead of Uni Melbourne 34, Uni Queensland 32, Monash U 30 and Uni Sydney 27.
The ARWU subject ranking uses the same methodology of its flagship league table, including papers published, journal and citation impact. This year it extended the use of discipline prizes by surveying academics to identify peak awards not widely known outside a field.
Scroll down for all the discipline lists (with apologies for errors/omissions). Last year’s results are in CMM for June 27 2019.
