This ranking is by citations per paper (impact), among those European institutions that have collected 50,000 or more citations in chemistry during the period. For papers with multiple institutional addresses, each institution receives full, not fractional, citation credit. Essential Science Indicators lists institutions ranked in the top 1 per cent for a field over a given period, based on total citations. For the current version, 892 institutions are listed in the field of chemistry, meaning that a total of 89,200 institutions were surveyed to obtain these results. Of the 892, 32 institutions collected 50,000 or more citations. The ranking by citations per paper (impact) seeks to reveal “heavy-hitters” based on per paper influence, not mere output. Also appearing is the world rank by impact for each of these European institutions.
