      Dear Prof. Ghauth Jasmon,
      As you are aware, On 30 October 2009, THE (Times Higher Education) broke with QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) and joined Thomson Reuters to provide a new set of world university rankings, called Times Higher Educati...on World University Rankings.
      The 2010-11 Times Higher Education World University Rankings will use 13 separate indicators (up from just six under their old system) designed to capture a broad range of activities, from teaching and research to knowledge transfer.

      These elements are brought together into five categories:

      * Teaching — the learning environment (worth 30 per cent of the final ranking score)

      * Research — volume, income and reputation (worth 30 per cent)

      * Citations — research influence (worth 32.5 per cent)

      * Industry income — innovation (worth just 2.5 per cent)

      * International mix — staff and students (worth 5 per cent)

      So, citation is most important issue in the new ranking system. We should concentrate to produce a good quality paper and advertise the publications by academic marketing tools (I am expert in some field and I am ready to help UM).
      All The best-Nader Ale Ebrahim
