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 Information (ISI).
"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
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
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.
