5.1 Publications

In the period 1996-2010, the TEIs of Athens, Thessaloniki and Crete were found to produce the majority of publications in this category. However, their output decreased in the period following 2008.

Figure 5.1.2 presents the level of growth for "TEIs" publications output. This is further complemented by Figure 5.1.2, which plots the number of publications by TEI and their year-on-year rate of change from 1996 to 2000.

Figure 5.1.3 presents data related to the quantity of publication output by each TEI and its share in the total output of the category "TEIs" –over the period 2006-2010–. "TEIs" were ranked in a descending order as follows: ΤΕΙ of Athens 480 (21.2%), ΤΕΙ of Crete 373 (16.5%), ΤΕΙ of Thessaloniki 331 (14.6%), ΤΕΙ of Larissa 170 (7.5%), ΤΕΙ of Piraeus 142 (6.3%), ΤΕΙ of Western Macedonia 131 (5.8%). The rest had a share of less than 5%.

Between 2006 and 2010, 12 (out of 16 TEIs) experienced a significant growth in their publication figures. ΤΕΙs of Messolonghi, Kavala, ASPAITE, Kalamata, Thessaloniki, Patras, and Athens exceeded the average growth of the category (Figure 5.1.4).  However, the number of publications produced by "TEIs" was still relatively low and varied over time.
