Shanghai Ranking 2015: UZH Moves Up Two More Places

UZH has improved its Shanghai Ranking for a second consecutive year, moving up two places to rank 54. On one hand, this can be attributed to the increase in articles published in 2014 (total publications in "Science Citation Index-Expanded" and in "Social Science Citation Index"); on the other hand, the ratio of published articles to researchers likewise improved.

In other words, not only were more articles published in total, but the researchers were – according to the evaluation methodology applied by the ranking system – also more productive.

Nonetheless, UZH’s share of publications in the prestigious journals "Nature" and "Science" slightly decreased in the year under review.
