    1. Only a portion of this table is shown here to demonstrate its form and content. A machine-readable version of the full table is available.

      This is an example of one of the Journal's machine readable tables. The reader clicks from the a shortened "example" version of the table inline to the main article to an ASCII text file that they can download and reuse. One of the Journal's data editors built this full ASCII text file from data provided by the author. This process includes standardizing formats, units and column explanations, which are all proofed by the author after the paper has been accepted.

      This is the main header block of the AAS Journal's "Machine Readable Format" for structured tables. It is based on the CDS table format, and follows their structuring rules. There are columns for the numerical format, units, labels, and explanations for each column.

    1. I think it is possibly too early to tell.

      As Steven Hill of HEFCE recently suggested, it might be far better for UK institutions to reject these tables: "What if all UK institutions made a stand against global rankings, and stopped using them for promotional purposes? The reputation of the UK’s higher education sector would stand firm, and a really strong signal would be sent to the rest of the world. Not drifting, but steering purposely through the metric tide." http://blog.hefce.ac.uk/2015/07/08/the-metrics-dilemma/
