Yvon Berland et le classement QS

Sur le blog "Histoires d'universités" de Pierre Dubois. Ma chronique du 9 mars 2017 – Classement QS des universités – a donné lieu à un commentaire d’Hervé Boismery. Yvon Berland, président d’Aix-Marseille Université, répond à Hervé Boismery dans un courriel qu’il m’a envoyé aujourd’hui.
Yvon Berland à Pierre Dubois. « Monsieur, Je souhaite par le présent mail apporter des éléments de réponses à un commentaire de Monsieur Hervé Boismery sur l’article « Classement QS des universités » publié sur votre blog.
Aix-Marseille Université a progressé cette année dans ce classement (entrée dans le classement pour 4 domaines sur 5, classée dans 17 disciplines contre 11 en 2016 et notée dans 42 disciplines contre 39 en 2016 avec 34 notes en progression/2016). Cependant, ces progressions et entrées dans le classement ne reflètent pas le niveau de notre recherche, car celle-ci est bien au-delà de ces scores. En effet, QS est un classement multidimensionnel, c’est-à-dire que la recherche, au travers de l’analyse des bases de données de publications (Nombre de citations par article et impact de la production scientifique) ne représente que 15 à 25% en fonction du domaine analysé. Les autres critères sont des réponses à des enquêtes mondiales via des experts ou des entreprises communiqués par les universités elles-mêmes. Ces personnes enquêtées doivent identifier 10 institutions nationales et 30 internationales dans leurs domaines. Pour le domaine Life Science & Medicine par exemple cela représente 75% de la note finale.
La renommée mondiale se quantifie-t-elle en interrogeant des contacts demandés par les structures commerciales aux institutions classées ou en analysant l’impact des publications scientifiques ? c’est toute la problématique des classements recherche et des classements multidimensionnels qui s’opposent.

Ten principles for the responsible use of university rankings

University rankings are controversial. There is a lot of criticism on well-known rankings such as the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), commonly referred to as the Shanghai Ranking, and the World University Rankings of Times Higher Education (THE) and QS. Nevertheless, universities often feel that they are under pressure to show a good performance in these rankings and universities may therefore pay considerable attention to these rankings in their decision making.
Today the 2017 edition of our CWTS Leiden Ranking was released. We use this opportunity to make a statement on appropriate and inappropriate ways of using university rankings. More...
