9.3 Citation impact

Figure 9.3.1 presents the publications, citations and field-normalized citation score for each institution*, compared to the world average, for the period 2006-2010. The field-normalized citation scores were adjusted to institutions’ differing citation practices across the 253 subject fields. This indicator was used for assessing the average impact of publications from each institution across different scientific fields.

The citation scores were the highest for the HENRY DUNANT hospital (HENRY DUNANT) and the Alfa Institute of Biomedical Sciences (AIBS). Their scores –1.65 and 1.46 respectively– surpassed the world average.
