Mapping Scientific Excellence; Measuring institutional performance with two indicators: Best paper Rate and Best Journal Rate: Erasmus scores excellent in Social Sciences

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

This web application visualizes scientific excellence worldwide in 17 subject areas. For each institution (university or research-focused institution), the estimated probabilities of (i) publishing highly cited papers (Best Paper Rate) or (ii) publishing in the most influential journals (Best Journal Rate) are shown. Both probabilities, which can be adjusted by covariates, range from blue (high probability) through grey (average) to red (low probability) at a circle. The circle size corresponds to the institutional number of papers.

The Web application is based on Scopus data collected for the SCImago Institutions Ranking. To obtain reliable data in terms of geo-coordinates and performance metrics, we only consider those institutions that have published at least 500 articles, reviews and conference papers in the period 2006 to 2010 in a certain Scopus subject area in the study.
