50 or more papers must be documented in our Scopus extract over our 5 year window. This is for any new entrants to the regional ranking, while existing ranked institutions will have until 2024 to achieve this minimum paper count. See Papers for more details.
Along with the global QS Asia University Rankings, we publish 4 sub-regional derivative rankings as well:
- QS Asia University Rankings: Eastern Asia
- QS Asia University Rankings: Southern Asia
- QS Asia University Rankings: South-Eastern Asia

An overall rank in the global ranking is transformed into an overall rank in the corresponding sub-regional ranking, using same overall and indicator scores as the global ranking. Indicator ranks in the sub-regional rankings are not available.
