The Times Higher Education’s Impact Rankings publish two types of lists: an overall list, which is calculated from the score in SDG 17 (Partnership for the Goals) and the best three scores in the remaining SDGs, and a list for each individual SDG, which ranks the universities that have provided data in each goal.

Participating universities must submit most of the data for the indicators and provide evidence to prove them. In addition, the publishers incorporate bibliometric datasets directly from the SCOPUS database. Based on these sources of information, the ranking calculates and weighs almost 230 indicators.
