научные достижения измеряются количеством потраченных денег

Согласно новым рейтингам US News & World Report наш несчастный департмент имеет ранг 97 среди департментов МЕ в США. В прошлые годы был во второй сотне. Я заинтересовался, как определяют ранг:

Quality assessment (weighted by 0.40)

Peer assessment score (0.25): In fall 2013, engineering school deans and deans of graduate studies at engineering schools were asked to rate programs on a scale from marginal (1) to outstanding (5). Those individuals who did not know enough about a school to evaluate it fairly were asked to mark "don't know."

A school's score is the average of all the respondents who rated it. Responses of "don't know" counted neither for nor against a school. About 52 percent of those surveyed responded.

Recruiter assessment score (0.15): In fall 2013, corporate recruiters and company contacts who hire from previously ranked programs were asked to rate programs on a scale from marginal (1) to outstanding (5). Those individuals who did not know enough about a school to evaluate it fairly were asked to mark "don't know." The names surveyed for the recruiter assessment score were provided by the schools themselves.

A school's score is the average of all the respondents who rated it. Responses of "don't know" counted neither for nor against a school. About 16 percent of those surveyed responded. For the purpose of calculating this year's rankings, the two most recent years of recruiter survey results were averaged and weighted by 0.15.

Student selectivity (weighted by 0.10)

Mean GRE quantitative scores (0.0675): This is the mean quantitative score of the GRE for master's and doctoral students entering in fall 2013. Scores for the new and old GRE were converted to a common scale for the purposes of the ranking calculations.

GRE scores are for master's and Ph.D. students. Only GRE scores using the new 130-170 score scale taken during or after August 2011 are displayed on the ranking tables. These GRE data are only available via a U.S. News Engineering School Compass subscription.

Acceptance rate (0.0325): This is the proportion of applicants to the master's and doctoral programs who were offered admission for fall 2013.

Faculty resources (weighted by 0.25)

Student-faculty ratio: This is the ratio of full-time doctoral students to full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty (0.075) and full-time master's students to full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty (0.0375) in fall 2013.

Percent of faculty in the National Academy of Engineering (0.075): This is the proportion of full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty who were members of the National Academy of Engineering during fall 2013.

Doctoral degrees awarded (0.0625): This is the total number of doctoral degrees granted in the 2012-2013 school year.

Research activity (weighted by 0.25)

Total research expenditures (0.15): This is the total externally funded engineering research expenditures. These expenditures refer to separately funded research, public and private, conducted by the school and are averaged over fiscal years 2012 and 2013. The definition for research expenditures is set by the American Society for Engineering Education.

Average research expenditures per faculty member (0.10): This is the average amount of externally funded engineering research expenditures per full-time faculty member averaged over fiscal years 2012 and 2013.


То есть совершенно однозначно научные достижения измеряются количеством потраченных денег. Может, написать в US News & World Report, что такой рейтинг неправильный, и что научные достижения определяются научными открытиями и влияниоем на научную литературу?
