Methodology and Ranking Criteria

The survey methodology provides the ability to validate nominations and allows insights into the nominees' critical success factors.
  • Public stakeholders can nominate the most respected books and their authors
  • Voters are then asked to give the reasons for their nominations, thus providing valuable insight into what key factors drive the success of these nominees. Questions are presented in free-form and open-ended formats.
  • Further research is conducted to validate the entries using sales figures, readers ratings and industry impact as expressed in the global media.
  • After verification and acceptance of the nomination, the input is then statistically analyzed taking into consideration the geographic region, the number of votes, the listed reasons and the order in which they are listed.
  • When two or more book score equally on overall ratings (reach a tie) , the Institute editors refer to the number of votes.

In a nutshell, the public nominates, the researchers validate the nominations, and the number votes determines the respectability and ranking.
