UR’s Open Rank Concept
We built this platform in a way that makes it possible for everyone to contribute. One of the ideas that has already been implemented is the ranking committee.
Ranking engine: UR's ranking engine is a data-driven-based engine by which we collect hundreds of millions of records that belong to more than 30,000 universities and 2.5 million academics for more than 100 factors; this data will play a big role in determining each university’s rank position.
The university, on the other hand, can use the UR platform to manage these records by editing or adding the missing pieces.
Ranking committee: This is a group of elite higher education stakeholders from all over the world who can join and act as decision-makers throughout the voting process to suggest changes regarding factor weight, types, categories, subcategories, and methodologies.
This concept will ensure a strong methodology and fairness, and this is why we are seeking top individuals from top institutes and organizations to join us and be part of this ranking engine, UNIRANKS.
