5.3 Citation impact

Figure 5.3.1 presents the number of publications and citations for each TEI and the relevant field-normalised citation score corresponding to the 5-year period 2006-2010. When referring to the field normalised citation score or “citation score”, we point out to the number of citations that TEIs’ publications received compared to the world average of citations received over the same time period and per scientific field. The normalisation was processed at the level of each publication according to the 253 NSI scientific subject fields. In the case that an article would be categorized in more than one subject fields, a mean value for the fields was calculated. The citation score was calculated using software developed by EKT. A value greater than 1, indicated that the impact of publications was higher than the world average.

Publications of the TEI of Patras achieved the highest citation score with a value of 1.46, well above the world average. The TEIs of Western Macedonia (0.95) and Crete (0.91) were approaching the world baseline.
