A worldwide assessment of the quality and quantity of scientific papers has identified that Brunel University London's Computer Science research is among the most highly cited in the world, meaning that other researchers refer to and build on Brunel's academic outputs.
The Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities, an annual league table produced by National Taiwan University (NTU), this year places Brunel at 77th in the world for Computer Science research. Ranking an impressive 5th among UK universities, Brunel comes out on top for three of the key quality measures that the NTU uses for the overall assessment: average number of citations in the last 11 years; H-Index of the last 2 years; and number of highly cited papers in the last 11 years.
Prof Simon Taylor, Brunel's Director of Research for Computer Science, commented: "The research carried out in Computer Science at Brunel has been truly impressive over the past decade, and I'm delighted to see this reflected in the NTU's performance rankings. All our department's staff and our students should be very proud of these achievements."
