    • Jagiellonian University name correction

      Dear Sirm/Madame
      The Polish name of the Jagiellonian University on a page http://www.natureindex.com/institution-outputs/poland/jagiellonian-university-uj/5450a7c5140ba089303a51f7 is wrong (in genitive). The proper Polish nominative name is "Uniwersytet Jagielloński", not "Uniwersytetu Jagiellońskiego".

      • search by department at an institution

        Can we track departments at an institution? For example, I would like to know the Biomedical Engineering Department at Cornell University's article count in Nature.

          You can can now see outputs for every department at an institution that has published a paper in the current window. Use the site search or go to the institutions profile and click on the relationships tab then click on the department you want.

          Cornell University is here: http://www.natureindex.com/institution-outputs/united-states-of-america-usa/cornell-university/5139073234d6b65e6a0021d1

          Best regards,

        • allow viewing of the data by year rather than just aggregate it in total

          would enable us to track whats happening over time (increase or decrease) in areas - may link to funding patterns

          • Slight Correction in Institutes address

            Dear Sir/ Madam,

            Thank you very much for releasing Nature Index Table 2016 which really is an excellent work and provides guidance to the Institutions of Higher Learning.

            I would like to bring in your notice a point which needs rectification at your website.

            For Pakistan, Commission on Science and Technology for Sustainable Development in the South (COMSATS) has been placed at No. 1.

            Actually, COMSATS itself is a Secretariat of the Commission with 23 member countries (http://www.comsats.org/).

            It is the COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT), which is an Institute of Higher Learning and totally independent from…

            • 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…

              • 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.

                    • 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
