Как объяснить подобное расхождение между репутацией и объективностью? Самое интересное, что это был один и тот же опрос, просто часть результатов (по репутации) они решили опубликовать отдельно.
The invitation-only survey was sent to tens of thousands of experienced academics, based on the United Nations' estimates of global academic researchers by geographical area.
...respondents could highlight what they believed to be the strongest universities, regionally and globally, in their specific fields, selecting from hundreds of disciplines and from more than 6,000 academic institutions. "Action-based" questions - such as "where would you recommend a top undergraduate should study for the best postgraduate supervision?" - were used to encourage more thoughtful responses and more meaningful results.
The same survey results formed two of the 13 performance indicators used to create the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2010-11, published on 16 September 2010. The reputation data are revealed here in isolation for the first time.
