Abstract

The focus of the chapter will be two-fold: concentration on input and outcomes of an international, institutional ranking for scholarship and research. After a review of the literature, the first portion will examine the development of a new objective institutional ranking system for public administration research and scholarship. Emphasis will be placed on differences and similarities from previous institutional ranking systems. The second portion will focus on the outcomes and resultant consequences – both intended and unintended – for development of an international ranking system away from traditional domestic methodologies based on reputational-subjective measures.
