The need for an international ranking of universities was highlighted in December 2003 in Richard Lambert's review of university-industry collaboration in Britain  for HM Treasury, the finance ministry of the United Kingdom. Amongst its recommendations were world university rankings, which Lambert said would help the UK to gauge the global standing of its universities.Richard Lambert HM Treasury The idea for the rankings was credited in Ben Wildavsky's book, The Great Brain Race: How Global Universities are Reshaping the World,  to then-editor of Times Higher Education (THE), John O'Leary. THE chose to partner with educational and careers advice company Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) to supply the data, appointing Martin Ince,  formerly deputy editor and later a contractor to THE, to manage the project. Times Higher EducationJohn O'LearyQuacquarelli Symonds  Between 2004 and 2009, QS produced the rankings in partnership with THE. In 2009, THE announced they would produce their own rankings, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, in partnership with Thomson Reuters. THE cited a weakness in the methodology of the original rankings,  as well as a perceived favoritism in the existing methodology for science over the humanities,  as one of the key reasons for the decision to split with QS.Times Higher Education World University RankingsThomson Reuters   QS retained the intellectual property in the Rankings and the methodology used to compile them  and continues to produce the rankings, now called the QS World University Rankings.  THE created a new methodology with Thomson Reuters, published as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings in September 2010.citation needed Times Higher Education World University Rankings
