- the number of articles published in Nature and Science, two leading scientific journals.
- the number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index.
- percentage of articles published in the top 20 percent of journals in a specific field.
- per capita performance with respect to the size of an institution.
