The Papers per Faculty indicator evaluates the productivity of researchers at the university.
It is currently incorporated in the following University Rankings by Region:
We receive the research data from Elsevier Scopus, and this is processed within our regular procedures.
Part of the intention behind the regional exercises is to evaluate a larger number of institutions – not only those contributing globally, but those who are regionally or nationally prominent. Often, publishing in English is not a prerequisite as it would be for larger more globalized universities.
Any ranking which features Papers per Faculty also includes Citations per Paper, serving to balance productivity with impact.
