QS's annual subject ranking is based on various criteria that are weighted differently in the individual subjects. The most important indicator is an online reputation survey of academics and employers, accounting for between 40 and 100 percent of the total points, depending on the subject. The average number of citations from scientific papers impacts the ranking up to 60 percent. International research networks are also considered for some engineering and science subjects.
