CHE Research Ranking: History

The table summarises the universities where research is a strength for history. A university is called strong in research if it is placed in the leader group in at least three of the six indicators. The University of Freiburg was the only institution to be placed top in every category, and it also has a fine reputation amongst the subject's specialists. All nine universities in the group of those strong in research this year had appeared here in 2004 too; five universities dropped out. The HU Berlin and the University of Münster owe their ranking amongst strong history research faculties mainly due to the per-head indicators. Of the strong research faculties, only two appear in the top group in terms of doctorates per head.
