I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Altmetric score university

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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?

  5. 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"!

  6. 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.

  8. 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
