D D Guttenplan in the New York Times 12/4/13:
Richard Holmes is "the rankings equivalent of the baseball statistics maven Bill James"

Phil Baty in Times Higher education 26/8/10:
Through his University Ranking Watch blog, he has perhaps done more than anyone to highlight the weaknesses in existing systems: indeed, he highlighted many of the problems that helped convince us to develop a new methodology with a new data provider, Thomson Reuters.

Ben Sowter in QS Intelligence Unit Blog June 2013:
Richard Holmes on his University Rankings Watch blog finds the time to go into more depth and detail than any other rankings commentator, over the years he has been broadly critical to a similar degree of all major rankings.

Eric Beerkens in Beerkens' Blog 23/3/07:
It's a good thing that there are people like Richard Holmes that are keeping a close watch on the methodology used in the rankings.
