Deakin University maintain top position in Sport Science

The ShanghaiRankings (ARWU) have recently announced their ranking of Sports & Exercise Science Universities around the world with Deakin University taking the top spot for another year.

Deakin’s School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences takes first place out of around 400 sporting universities being considered for the ranking.  The ARWU table is calculated from several indicators of academic or research performance, including papers indexed in Web of Science, total citations, citations per paper, papers published in top 25% journals, and percentage of internationally collaborated papers of an institution.

The University of Queensland also made the top ten, with a ranking of number 5 in the world.  See the full rankings table on the ARWU website.
