NWO and KNAW institutes: scientific publication output and citation impact (WoS)

The indicator shows two aspects of the scientific output by NWO and KNAW institutes: 1) Trends in the number of scientific publications, as registered in the Web of Science database by Clarivate Analytics, and 2) the citation impact of the institutes.

The number of scientific publications produced by the KNAW and NWO institutes show a positive trend, but since 2017 the number of publication produced by the KNAW institutes is declining slightly.

Publications by both the KNAW institutes as well as the NWO institutes show a relatively high citation impact scores. Over the period 2015-2018 the KNAW institutes citation scores are well above the average in the Netherlands (Dutch average = 1.31, world-wide average = 1.0). The citation scores for the NWO institutes over the period 2015-2018 are sligthly below the Dutch average.
