University profile maps
The maps displayed below provide an overview of the research profile of a university. The maps show the 245 subject categories (i.e., research fields) in the Web of Science database. The size of a subject category indicates the activity of a university in the subject category relative to the world average. Activity is measured in terms of publications. The color of a subject category indicates the impact of a university in the subject category relative to the world average. Impact is measured in terms of average number of citations per publication. The following color coding is used:
- Grey: The impact of a university in a subject category is far below world average.
- Blue: The impact of a university in a subject category is around world average.
- Red: The impact of a university in a subject category is far above world average.
It should be noted that sometimes a university has only a very limited number of publications in a subject category. The color of the subject category should then be interpreted with great care, since it is based on only a small amount of data. The maps displayed below show the research profiles of the following Dutch universities:
The maps are based on publications from the period 2005-2008 and citations until the end of 2009. Click on a map to examine the map in full detail using VOSviewer.
