Abstract/Summary The globalisation of research means that universities are no longer content merely with national comparisons of research performance and standing. Universities that wish to compete for leading academic talent and access global research opportunities must develop an advanced understanding of their relative position within the global knowledge economy. This entails benchmarking performance at the level of the institution, academic elements and research centres, and of individual researchers - within broad disciplines and narrow subject areas. This presentation explores several methods used to benchmark performance, and discusses the issues associated with making global comparisons and the opportunities to employ more advanced techniques.
