QUT rates eighth in the world in the new Nature index of “fast-rising” research institutions
The index tracks research in 82 journals. It is based on fractional counts of the per centage of an article’s authors from an institution. All authors are assumed to make equal contributions.
QUT’s fractional count lifted from 16.6 in 2015 to 27.85 in ’18. In comparison, the top-rated fast riser, University of Chinese Academy of Science China, increased from 212.93 in ’15 to 318.77 last year.
