  2. Show all the institutions name in a list when the search is made by country.

    If you show all the institutions when the search is made by country, and then permit to compare the subject, number of papers and journals between two or more institutions of the same country, that will be of great help, because in that way any user can know where is the more production o which institution is better in an area of science.

  4. Ensure that all disciplines are covered in the journal selection.

    Your list of 68 journals is inadequate because it does not include any journals for some disciplines. For example, my discipline is not represented in the journal choices. Does the panel believe that no high quality research could possibly come from my discipline? Should institutions be penalized for allowing my discipline to be studied? (My discipline is green chemistry and the relevant journals are: Green Chemistry, ChemSusChem, ACS Sustainable Chemistry, Environmental Science and Technology, Energy & Environmental Science, etc.

  5. fix search

    I can't find UCL when typing in "university college" even though that exact name pops up when looking for "UCL". Seems odd...

  6. Improve your definition of, or enlarge your coverage of, environmental sciences

    Currently the Nature Index has a category described as "earth and environmental sciences", but this is not really accurate: there are no environmental science journals included in this list.

    I suggest you either add some journals (E.g. Environ. Sci. Technol. could be considered as, in my opinion, the most widely respected broad scope journal in its field), or change the category description to "earth sciences and ecology" to better reflect the coverage.

  9. show the connection between a region and a country

    It would be good to see at a glance what region a country is in. So bringing up a results page for a country, on that page there would be somewhere what region this country is in

  10. Anomaly in numbers and list of papers

    The total number of papers (AC) under IISERs are showing as 200. But, when we are counting these numbers as given beside the specific journals these come to 72. And if we calculate the total number of papers as given beside the individual titles of the journals for each IISERs, it comes to a total of 82. The same is true for individual IISERs. For example, for IISER Kolkata, the AC is given as 39, but counting individual papers against each of the journals brings it to 11. We feel confused by this possible anomaly in the numbers. Please help.

  13. Update top articles by Altmetric score dynamically

    Currently, top articles by Altmetric score does not seem to update dynamically (or reflect the actual articles that have top attention scores for an institution for the time period listed on the institution page). This would be a nice feature. I'm not sure what date range is currently being applied to the "Top articles by Altmetric score" for each institution, but it would make sense for it to use the same date range as the data in the table above.

  16. Wrong paper added with IISER Kolkata

    You have added <https://www.natureindex.com/article/10.1029/2017jd027427> the paper "The Effect of Monsoon Circulation on the Stable Isotopic Composition of Rainfall" under IISER Kolkata for the duration 01 July 2017 – 31 June 2018. But a check at the paper, available at <https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1029/2017JD027427> tells us that there is no author from IISER Kolkata here.

    Please comment.

  19. About the institution outputs, are differences in the info.

    About the institution outputs, there are and excellent idea, but there are some differences from the profile of some institutions and their outputs.

    Example:

    IMSS-Institution outputs by country (Mexico)
    http://www.natureindex.com/institution-outputs/articles/Life%20Sciences/countries-Mexico/Mexico/Mexican%20Social%20Security%20Institute%20(IMSS)/n_article/543de0f7140ba0601c7e14bd

    IMSS Profile
    http://www.natureindex.com/institution-outputs/Mexico/Mexican%20Social%20Security%20Institute%20(IMSS)

    The results are different. In the outputs of IMSS appear 1
    2 articles, but in the profile appear 4 articles.

    See you, thanks

    Hello,

    Two of the papers are from consortia located in the USA. As a result that paper will not appear in outputs generated for research from Mexico. However it will of course appear in the IMSS profile, which accounts for all research globally including foreign affiliated institutions and consortia.

    Thank you for your interest in the Index.

    Regards,
    Bob

  20. The diffence between AC and the sum of fractioonal count for collaborative paplers involving the named country and partners

    About Table of top 100 countries by collaboration score. I suggest Nature to explain better what is means "The score for country A = sum of all FCs for country A and all its collaborating countries". Is the same of AC? Because in the table of 2014 Nature team use AC and in the table of 2015 the author uses Weighted Collaboration Score. Are they the same kind of date? If is not, is not clear for me, what is the difference? Thanks

    By “The score for country A = sum of all FCs for country A and all its collaborating countries", we are referring to the sum of FCs for all the bilateral relationships a country has.

    So for example, if country A has relationships with 2 others, B and C, then the collaboration score is the sum of FC for A+B and A+C. In other words, if Brazil only collaborated with Argentina and Chile then the collaboration score for Brazil would be: (FCBrazil+FCArgentina)+ (FCBrazil+FCChile).

    The weighted collaboration score uses the same calculation, but is based on WFC instead of FC.

    AC stands for Article Count, which we use for direct output (not collaborations) and which is not used in the collaboration supplement. It refers to the number of papers a country (or institution) has published in the Nature Index.

    In the 2014 supplements you are referring to, we have been looking…
