I am speculating that a similar study will show that the reverence accorded to a lot of "top" US/UK universities is also irrational.

A double blindfold assessment of the research of a professor from Harvard/Cambridge.Oxford will not be found to be superior to the research at many other less known universities.

Even scientists who are supposed to be interested only in objective truths fall prey to irrelevant things like brand name and authority.
