Data 

Source Supply

U.S. News and World Report released the first worldwide university rankings named the “Best Global Universities” on Oct.28, 2014. Using data from Thomson Reuters InCites, U.S. News sorted schools on various measures related to

research.

 The total number of 

evaluated universities is 

750, and among them the 

top 500 were selected to 

make up the overall Best 

Global Universities 

rankings.

 The methodology for 

both the region rankings 

and the country 

rankings is 

based entirely on how a 

school ranked in the 

overall Best Global 

Universities rankings.

 Okayama University’s 

positions in the rankings 

of global, region and 

country are 377th, 59th
