Interesting statistics on rankings. No doubt, Chinese universitites strengthened positions in the Big three (THE, QS, ARWU) due to Project 211 (top 100 HEIs) and Project 985 (40 HEIs). By the way, are there any other plans and programmes to be implemented in the near future?

Mr. Jacobson, good that you mentioned the "Big three". No doubt, they are highly valued and have a great impact, but if we look closer much attention is paid to scientific research and citations (I think they are correlated in some way). So universities focus on wastefull research and rush to get perfomance indicators for publications. I personally think that these two points, Research and Citations, should be united.
