The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022 covers a total of 51 disciplines, which are grouped into five disciplines. This ranking was released by QS to help the public identify the leading universities in a particular science family and/or field of knowledge.

The ranking of universities in the world based on this field of science is determined based on an assessment of five indicators, namely academic reputation, the results of a global survey conducted on graduate users and academics, the number of research citations achieved by the university per paper in the subject (all citation data sourced from Elsevier Scopus ), the ‘H-index’ which measures the productivity and impact of published academic research, and the International Research Network which reflects the ability of institutions to diversify the geography of their international research network by building ongoing research partnerships with other higher education institutions.
