Don't you think it is trifle unfair to rank a liberal arts school by reference to citations in only scientific journals?

Moreover Harvard Law School had only one and the Kennedy School of Government no highly cited researchers. Do you think that is representative of Harvard's strength?

Nulli tertius, you are mistaken. This ranking is all encompassing. It focuses on publications in all academic journals, not just scientific ones.

Into which of these 22 categories does the Harvard Law Review (the most prestigious law journal in America) fall?

Into which of these 22 categories does English Historical Review (probably the world's leading historical journal) fall?

Into which of these 22 categories does Shakespeare Quarterly, (the leading journal on Shakespearian literature) fall.
