data publication
15 September 2020
Citation-impact university
What is the citation impact score of Dutch universities (2015-2018)? What is the score when we distinguish scientific publications by type of collaboration? And how do these scores relate to each other? In this data publication, we share the figures of the citation impact of Dutch universities.

In short

  • The citation impact score of all Dutch universities is higher than the world average.
  • In international collaboration, the citation impact score is higher than the average citation impact score (per university).
  • The citation impact score of national or no collaboration is lower than the average citation impact score at all universities.

What is the citation-impact per university in the period 2015-2018?


Which type of collaboration do we see per university?

Analysis
All universities show citation scores above the world average. However, there are substantial differences between the universities.

When we look at the citation score by type of cooperation (international, national, no cooperation), for all universities the publications with international cooperation have a citation score which is higher compared to the overall citation score. Contrary, the citation score for publications with national or no cooperation have a lower citation score compared to the overall citation score.
