According to the latest SCImago Institutions Ranking report, the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) is amongst the top ten research institutes in the world in the health sector.

The SCImago Institutions Ranking uses a set of bibliometric indicators to rank institutions by the quality of their research. The report lists all organisations from any country with at least 100 papers published in the last year of the five-year period.

In 2013, the report covers the years 2007-2011 and analyses 2,740 institutions. The report lists not only the total output (number of papers published) but also other indicators that evaluate the scientific impact, thematic specialization and international collaboration networks.

According to the most important criteria – the impact of the research papers published – CRG is ranked number 9 in the world, number 4 in Europe and number 1 in Spain in the health sector.
