Not Another Ranking...

This week, I found out about a new ranking: ScimagoIR. There are rankings for schools, universities, but this ranking is for research institutions, either hospitals, companies, universities or public institutes. I am not a great advocate for rankings, but at the same time it is always interesting to look at this data. Furthermore, the ranking can be seen by country and several parameters are showed: number of publications, percentage of publication with international collaborators, percentage of publications in top journals, scientific leadership, ... I found out that my institution is actually one of the leaders of the ranking!
