ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Sport Science Schools and Departments is announced today. Deakin University in Australia is ranked No.1 in the world, followed by Norwegian School of Sport Sciences and University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
In 2016, ShanghaiRanking published this ranking for the first time, adopting a unique methodology highlighting the performance of more than 300 universities with sport-related units. This ranking allows sport-related institutions and units to compare with similar peers other than multi-disciplinary universities in a specific subject. The top 300 universities are listed based on the measurement of publication, citation, citations per publication, top 25% journal publications, and internationally collaborated publications. The bibliometric data is collected from the Web of Science database with a time window of five years.
Among the top 300 in the 2021 list, 13 units are sports universities, and 287 are universities with sport-related units. 41 universities have more than 1 sport-related institution or unit.
