Date:October 30, 2009
AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine ranked first in number of citations per published research paper, according to Sci-Bytes: What’s New in Research, a weekly summary of research news published by Sciencewatch.
The ranking includes U.S. institutions that published at least 200 papers in Thomson-Reuters-indexed journals of veterinary medicine between 2004 and 2008. The publication based its rankings on the number of times scientific publications are noted as substantiating or contributing to another researcher’s publication.
“This recognition speaks well of the quality of our researchers and the respect they have earned through their work here at Iowa State,” said Dr. Lisa K. Nolan, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies. “It is gratifying to have our people and their cutting edge research in animal and human health recognized in this manner.”
The college was featured in the publication’s Veterinary Medicine: High-Impact U.S. Institutions 2004-2008.
