TSRI Ranked Second Among High-Impact Institutions in Chemistry
The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) was recently ranked second in
a list of high-impact institutions released by the Institute for Scientific
"These numbers indicate that TSRI's published work in chemistry has
had an extraordinarily high impact in the field during the past decade,"
comments Jeffery Kelly, TSRI's vice president for academic affairs and
dean of the Kellogg School of Science and Technology.
Institutions were ranked by the average citations per paper. According
to the list, the top five institutions were:
1.Caltech, average citation per paper of 24.58;
2.The Scripps Research Institute, average citation per paper of 24.28;
3.Harvard University, average citation per paper of 22.51;
4.IMB Corporation, average citation per paper of 21.42;
5.Battelle Memorial Institute, average citation per paper of 21.21.
The ranking was generated by ISI's Essential Science Indicators, a web-based
data file reflecting upwards of 7 million papers in the last decade, and
published in an edition of its editorial feature " SCI-BYTES: What's New
in Research." ISI is a Philadelphia-based company that runs the Science
and Social Science Index.
ISI periodically releases such lists in a variety of fields. Last year,
the British newspaper The Guardian reported results based on ISI
surveys that ranked TSRI's influence in the field as number one in the
world in the physical sciences (including chemistry and physics), tenth
in the world in the medical sciences, and eleventh in the biological sciences.
