News from the CRG
The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) is ranked #5 worldwide when looking at the best journal rate, which corresponds to the ratio of papers that an institution publishes in the most influential scholarly journals (those ranked in the first quartile (25%) of their subject categories). This indicator shows the ability of an institution to publish its research results in reputable journals. The CRG appears as the second European institution in this ranking and is only preceded by the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
The CRG moves up to rank #4 worldwide and #1 in Europe when selecting the ‘Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology' subject area with the same indicator. The CRG stands out when the Best Journal indicator is adjusted using the two of the available covariate analysis, ranking #1 worldwide for “Number of Academic Institutions per country” and “Gross Domestic Product per capita of a country”, within the Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology subject area.
