The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) ranks Emory University in the Top 10 globally in seven subject areas based on the number of research articles in top-tier journals over the last 10 years. The CWUR rankings feature the top global universities in 227 subjects covering all academic disciplines in the sciences and social sciences.

Emory achieved Top-10 rankings in cardiac & cardiovascular systems (10); immunology (8); microbiology (6); pathology (10); social sciences, biomedical (10); virology (6); and women's studies (10).

In total, 36 countries are represented and 365 institutions achieved at least one Top-10 listing. The USA accounts for 45 percent of the Top-10 institutions, followed by China (13 percent), United Kingdom (10 percent), Canada (5 percent), and the Netherlands (4 percent).

Data for the number of research articles in top journals is obtained from Clarivate Analytics (previously the Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters). More information about the methodology is available at:
