SCU's Ranking in Nature Grows Steadily

Recently, the Nature Index website updated the latest nature index ranking in 2018 (statistical time: 1 October 2017-30 September 2018). Sichuan University's ranking grew steadily, up to top 55 in the worldwide universities.


In November 2014, the Nature Publishing Group issued the global "Nature Index" using the brand new WFC (weighted fractional count), based on the research papers published by the scientific research institutions in 68 natural science journals such as Nature, Science and Cell, and the tracked background information of 20,000 scientific research institutions for the authors of about 60,000 high-quality scientific research papers. These 68 journals are selected independently by two teams of global in-service scientists, and divided into four categories: Chemistry, Earth& Environmental Sciences, Life Sciences, and Physical Sciences, which are important indexes to evaluate the outputs of international high-level academic achievements.
