Impact and Meaningless Rankings

The Network for Irish Educational Standards blog has a post out today called Stifling Discovery: Science Foundation Ireland’s New Mission and the Jobs Myth. The paragraph that interests us is the following:

Take the recent example of the Times Higher Education rankings scandal. Under the heading of “research impact” the virtually unknown Alexandria University of Egypt was placed fourth in the world — behind only Caltech, M.I.T. and Princeton, and ahead of both Harvard and Stanford. As it turned out, this remarkable achievement was down to the tireless work of one researcher Mohamed El Naschie, who managed to publish 320 papers in a journal that he edited himself.
