  1. Altmetric score university

    If you can add the altmetrics-information of the universities, it's good.

    • Should include institutions without any bias.

      there are Institutional profiles which are altogether missing as if those have contributed nothing, but is not the case. I think this index needs revisit.

      • Institution size

        Hi! Institution output without regard for size of the institution is actually not too helpful in any way... you may perhaps include an index that adjusts for number of faculty associated with each institution... Similar ideas have been declined without much feedback

        • remove "high-quality research" and "benchmark research performance" from you description of the index.

          I found those terms extremely misleading, the Nature-Index tracks the affiliations of publications published in high-regarded journals, but not more.

          Is all publications in these journals high-quality research? Or course not. Is all "high-quality research" published in these journals? Or course not.
          Thus, how this highly biased index can benchmark global research performance?

          • There should be retraction index too, depending on the number

            There should be retraction index too, depending on the number of retracted, fraud, irreproducible papers published by an author or journal. This index should be deducted to for the final "nature index"!

            • take into account the number of faculty members per institution

              In addition to your current metrics, normalizing the article count per number of faculty members per institution would allow to highlight very strong, but much smaller, institutions. It is normal that an institution with 7 000 faculty members has more published papers in the index than an institution with 200 faculty members.

                • check your searching engine

                  looking at Poland: only 10 Physical Review A in the period listed?? Of course wrong - here come 3 my own papers not found: http://journals.aps.org/pra/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevA.89.033625
                  http://journals.aps.org/pra/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevA.89.043626
                  http://journals.aps.org/pra/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevA.90.033621

                  why show statistics which obviosly does not work?

                  it is even worse with institutions...

                    Hello,

                    Those articles are not included in the Index dataset. I’d suggest checking the FAQ page (http://www.natureindex.com/faq#methodology5), only ‘Highlighted articles’ and ‘Rapid Communications’ from Physical Review A, Physical Review B and Physical Review D are included in the dataset.

                    What issues did you find with the institutions?
                    I will take a look at them for you.

                    Thank you for your interest in the Index.

                    Regards,
                    Bob
