Best Universities for Literature in the World

Below is the list of best universities in the World ranked based on their research performance in Literature. A graph of 518K citations received by 167K academic papers made by 981 universities in the World was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science profiles.
