Abstract

In recent decades ranking has become an increasingly important feature of an academic's life. Individuals, journals, universities and departments are all ranked. To an extent this is an inherent part of what we have always done, as professors we rank students and we tend to rank them into one of four categories. As Sgroi and Oswald observe, in this symposium, rightly or wrongly the United Kingdom has been a leader in formal ways to measure the research performance of universities
