Motivation

The Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities (Q478743) is arguably the most important ranking of higher education institution (Q38723). We should be able to cover its contents through a direct property. Thierry Caro (talk) 11:59, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support looks useful. ArthurPSmith (talk) 00:31, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment I'm generally not a fan of university rankings because of the arbitrariness of section weighting, the extent to which universities can misrepresent themselves to get better rankings ([1]), and general focus on just the elite institutions. Adding a property perpetuates a system I see as pretty problematic. But I won't get in the way of a property that others find useful. Runner1928 (talk) 15:05, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
