While the ranking of higher education institutions (HEIs) has become more and more popular,
there are increasing concerns about the quality of such ranking. In response to such legitimate
expectations, in May 2006, the International Ranking Expert Group (IREG) developed and
endorsed a guideline document – the Berlin Principles on Ranking of Higher Education
Institutions (hereafter called the Berlin Principles), which consist of sixteen descriptive and
prescriptive principles for ranking covering four aspects: the purpose and goal of ranking; the
design and weighting of indicators; the collection and processing of data; and the presentation
of ranking results. The purpose of this paper is to examine selected HEIs rankings according to
the Berlin Principles as well as to propose concrete ‘Fourteen Criteria’ which, if followed, could
enhance the quality of ranking.
