Aside from the overall rankings, THE also provides rankings by subject.

We saw two of our very own educational institutions--University of the Philippines and De La Salle University--on the list of the Times Higher Education (THE)'s 2021 World University RankingsIn the list's 2021 edition, UP landed at the 401 to 500 bracket while DLSU was at the 1,000 bracket.

Aside from the overall rankings, THE also provides rankings by subject. In the clinical, pre-clinical, and health rankings for 2020, UP surprisingly outranks Ivy League school Harvard University as well as prestigious institutions like University of Oxford, Stanford University, and University of Cambridge when it comes to the Citations weightings.

Under this benchmark, UP earned a score of 91.9, a huge gap from Oxford's 74.0, Stanford's 73.3, Cambridge's 68.8, and Harvard's 66.7. According to THE, the score for Citations make up 35 percent of the overall rankings (Overall, UP is at the 121-150 bracket for this subject).

The Citations or research influence, according to THE's explanation, is measured based on the "universities’ role in spreading new knowledge and ideas." This looks at the number of times a published work from a certain university has been cited by other bodies of research across the globe. Being cited means that the research in this particular subject (in this case, clinical, pre-clinical, and health) was significant enough to catch the attention of other scholars and contribute to the collective knowledge in that field.
