Dear all,

this is somewhat off-topic, but given the audience of this
mailling list this might interest some people here.

I have imported under R the data used in 2004 by Liu et al.
from Shanghai Jiao Tong University to build their "Academic
Ranking of World Universities", see:

The following R code:
loadURL("http://pbil.univ-lyon1.fr/R/donnees/shangai.RData", mode = "wb")
should import a dataframe called "shangai" in your workspace.

If you are interested I have also a draft Sweave-generated document
based on this dataframe, but all comments are in french.

I would be interested by references of scientific articles
about this ranking.
