    shows the Top Ten universities by output in China and France ordering them by NI scores As can be seen just two Chinese universities equal or exceed the world average barrier to the rest their scientific impact is lower than the international standard in some a 40 lower those that have 0 6 score On the other hand french largest universities present scientific outputs with significant impact all of the over 40 of the world average 1 4 to 1 7 Source SCImago Insitutions Rankings Period 2006 2010 In the following post of this series we will talk about the two main methods to compute the Normalized Impact indicator the so called CROWN indicator by the University of Leiden and the Field Normalized Citation Score set by the Karolinska Instituet We will also compare NI with other indicators used in SIR Rankings and describe its features Borja González Pereira works at Scimago Lab as Content and Media Manager he is also a researcher at SCImago Research Group where participates in the development of the SJR indicator and in renowned bibliometic projects including Scimago Journal Country Rank Scimago Institution Rankings and The Atlas of Science His main interest included Bibliometrics and Scientometrics World s Top 100 Companies by Scientific Knowledge Output a Scientometric Characterization SCOPUS 2003 2010 June 6 2012 To date we have been posting brief scientometric tables of universities and national research agencies to expand our analysis the current post is devoted to Private Companies as scientific agents so we ll lead the spotlight to the World s Major Companies and their research performance outputs We are going to consider the Top 100 scientific producers and show their indicators related to scientific impact international collaboration ability to put their papers in top journals specialization rate and excellence output The research activity carried out at big companies is concentrated in Northen America and Western Europe 44 in Northern America and 36 in Western Europe among the Top 100 The list shows a prominent bias in the Activity Sector as well most of the selected companies belong to ICT 46 PHARMACEUTICAL 26 or ENERGETIC 14 The following table contains some key scientometric indicators of these companies based on SCOPUS data during the period 2003 2010 Download Table The indicators included in the table are the following Output The number of scientific papers published in scholarly journals reveals the ability of an institution to create scientific knowledge In co authored publications a score is assigned to each contributing institution through the author s institutional address International Collaboration It shows the ability of institutions to create international research links through the output ratio that has been produced in collaboration with foreign institutions The values are computed by analyzing the institution s output whose affiliations include more than one country address Normalized Impact Normalized Impact scores indicate the scientific impact that institutions have over the scientific community In order to obtain a fair measurement of impact the calculation removes the influence due to institutions size and research profile making it ideal for comparing research performance Normalized Impact values show the ratio between the average scientific impact of an institution and the world average impact of publications of the same time frame document type and subject category The values are expressed in percentages and show the relationship of the institution s average impact to the world average which is 1 i e a score of 0 8 means the institution is cited 20 below world average and 1 3 means the institution is cited 30 above world average Normalized Impact is computed using the methodology established by the Karolinska Intitutet in Sweden where it is named Item oriented field normalized citation score average The long name used is because the normalization of the citation values is done on an individual article level Further information on the methodology at Bibliometric Handbook for Karolinska Institutet High Quality Publications Q1 Ratio of publications that an institution publishes in the world most influential scholarly journals Journals considered for this indicator are those ranked in the first quartile 25 in their categories as ordered by SCImago Journal Rank SJR indicator Specialization Rate The Specialization Rate indicates the extent of thematic concentration dispersion of an institution s scientific output Values range between 0 to 1 indicating generalistic vs specialized institutions respectively This indicator is computed according to the Gini Index used in Economy Excellence The Excellence indicates the number of papers an institution included into the set formed by the 10 of the most cited papers in their respective scientific fields It is a measure of high quality output of research institutions Leadership

Mainly funded by public funds the Italian leading scientific institution is a government agency with 107 Institutes set throughout the country four of them have been discontinued and grouped into 11 thematic departments In 2009 the scientific output attributable to CNR Institutes represented more than 10 of Italian scientific output Again we present in this post a table in PDF format that based
