ABSTRACT

This paper takes the master’s and doctoral dissertations on university ranking of China in CNKI database as the research object, and uses the methods of statistical analysis of literature and content analysis to explore the current situation of the research on university ranking in China from the aspects of the number of papers published per year, the frequency of the degree-granting units, the frequency of tutor’ guidance, the cited frequency of literatures, the frequency of disciplines and majors, and the frequency of keywords. The results show that: Scholars’ interest in university ranking is growing; a group of influential and high-level university research teams are forming; but the field of research is still limited and needs to be further expanded; and the research on university ranking needs more support from funding projects.
