Research Center for China Science Evaluation have published “Evaluation Report on Discipline Competitiveness of World-Class Universities and Research Institutions” in 2005, 2007 and 2009, with the purpose of creating a comprehensive and systematical criterion for the quality evaluation of world-class universities. This is the fourth time to study the scientific competitiveness of world-class universities and research institutions. Multi-indicator evaluation methods are adopted to yield an overall competitiveness score for each world-class university. This paper gives overall developments and changes of world-class universities. It is observed that the ranking of world-class universities has been fluctuating significantly. Recent years have witnessed steady progress of China universities, and there is still much room for their improvement.
