To feature in any discipline of the QS Subject Rankings an institution must meet three simple prerequisites:
· Exceed the minimum required score for the academic and/or employer reputation indicators
· Exceed the five-year threshold for the number of papers published in the given discipline
· Offer undergraduate or taught postgraduate programs in the given discipline
The publication threshold for all subjects can be found here under the tab 'Research Metrics'. For example, for an institution to be considered for the subject Earth & Marine Sciences, the institution requires a minimum of 80 papers indexed by Scopus in a five-year period .
