In the latest ranking of the best universities of the world by US news and World Reports, Shahid Beheshti University (SBU) was ranked 16th among the universities of the Iranian ministries of science and health.

Based on U.S. News and World Report's 2021 Best Global Universities Rankings, 31 Iranian institutions are placed among the top institutions of the world.

U.S. News & World Report’s Best Global Universities Rankings were produced to provide insight into how universities compare globally. Since an increasing number of students plan to enroll in universities outside of their own country, the Best Global Universities rankings – which focus specifically on schools' academic research and reputation overall and not on their separate undergraduate or graduate programs – can help those applicants accurately compare institutions around the world.

The overall Best Global Universities rankings encompass nearly 1,500 top institutions spread across 86 countries, up from 81 countries last year. The first step in producing these rankings, which are powered by Clarivate, involved creating a pool of 1,748 universities that was used to rank the top 1,500 schools.

To create the pool of 1,748, U.S. News first included the top 250 universities in the results of Clarivate's global reputation survey. Next, U.S. News added institutions that had met the minimum threshold of at least 1,250 papers published in 2014 to 2018, down from 1,500 papers last year. The last step was to remove duplicates and institutions that are not schools to reach the final 2021 ranking pool of 1,748 institutions.

U.S. News uses 13 key indicators to evaluate the institutions: global research reputation, regional research reputation, publications, books, conferences, normalized citation impact, total citations, number of publications that are among the 10% most cited, percentage of total publications that are among the 10% most cited, international collaboration - relative to country, international collaboration, number of highly cited papers that are among the top 1% most cited, percentage of highly cited papers that are among the top 1% most cited. Evaluation data for these indicators are gathered in collaboration with Clarity Analytics.
