Following up earlier post on the THE 2008 rankings, 17 UK universities make the top 100:
83= St Andrews
86 University of Nottingham
Some fluctuations on 2007 but nothing too dramatic (arguably). The BBC’s reports on all this fun and entertainment is interesting for its matter of fact approach.

Why there is a contradiction between the UK and the World league table published by the Times. Is int it the case that you can manipulate the league table the way you want it by choosing different criteria?
The Economist won’t use numbers from the THE tables because the numbers are SO clearly fishy and overly-represenging UK universities. The better rankings are the non-UK biased ones here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academic_Ranking_of_World_Universities
Nice blog! useful for academic references. Keep up the good work. Anyway keep up the great blogging!!
Cambridge is always the best ranked UK university in many league tables such as The Times and Guardian.
