Top 20 Institutions

The three top institutions ranked by total citations and total papers are the three major centers of theoretical physics in Europe—CERN, with over 29,000 citations, the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics, with 22,552 citations, and the Max Planck Society in Germany, with just over 13,000 citations. In the list of institutions with the most cites per paper, these top three spots are taken by Stanford University, the University of California at Santa Barbara and the University of Washington.

Thirty-nine institutions in total show up on one of the three lists. Twenty-two are from the US, four are from the UK, three are from Japan; there are two each from Switzerland, Russia, Italy, and Germany, and one each from China and France.

About The Institutions



The resulting database contained 2,920 institutions. Ranked by three separate measures: citations, papers, and citations per paper. Source dates: January 1, 2001-September 26, 2011. *Unless otherwise specified, all rankings have a >= 5 paper threshold for all measures.

Overall General Information


 
Regarding Top 20 Scientists, Institutions, Journals, & Nations

Citation tables allow us to map compelling trends:

  • Are there particular nations or institutions that might be expected to dominate research in the Topic area, and do the numbers bear out these expectations, or are there surprises?
  • Who are the leading scientists and where are they located?

While these tables cannot offer a complete picture, the number of trends and anomalies that can be spotlighted or connected across categories is striking. The tables often lead to renewed perspectives to further explore and validate.

What are Special Topics?



Special Topics, from ScienceWatch.com, is designed to complement Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Clarivate Analytics in providing citation analyses and commentary for selected scientific research areas that have experienced notable recent advances or are of special current interest.

Read about the overall methodology for Special Topics in the "What are Special Topics?" page.
