Research Metrics: Institution Metrics

Types of Institution Metrics

Research Output

Examine the total research output of an institution using metrics such as number of publications, number of citations, percentage of documents cited, number of highly cited papers, and number of international collaborations. Determine the research output of an institution by discipline.

Benchmarking

Compare the research output and impact of multiple institutions based on different metrics such as number of publications, number of citations, percentage of documents cited, number of highly cited papers, and number of international collaborations.

Collaboration

Examine an institution's collaborations with individual authors, other institutions, and with particular countries. Evaluate these collaborations based on measures such as number of publications, number of citations, percentage of documents cited, and number of highly cited papers.

Institution Metrics

Institution metrics show an institution's overall impact based on the publications of its authors and the number of times they have been cited.

Use institution metrics to track an institution's research output and impact, benchmark an institution against others, examine an institution's research output and impact by discipline, and evaluate an institution's collaborations.

Use these databases to analyze an institution's research output.
