Shanghai Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS) is an international ranking of universities in various academic disciplines. Fifty-four disciplines are classified in the ranking in five areas: natural sciences, medical sciences, social sciences, life sciences, and engineering. In total, the ranking comprises 1800 universities from 93 countries all over the world.

The ranking covers five criteria: the number of influential journal publications, the citation impact measured with the index Category Normalized Citation Impact (CNCI), international collaboration related to publications, the number of papers published in Top Journals and the number of significant scientific awards.

The GRAS ranking is a subject ranking created by the Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, which also runs the Shanghai ranking (ARWU). The ARWU Ranking is one of the four most important university rankings, along with QS, Times Higher Education and U-Multirank.
