In 2017, the web application Mapping Scientific Excellence ranked ICIQ in third position on “Best Paper Rate” (proportion of highly cited papers published by an institution) and second on “Best Journal Rate” (ratio of papers published in the most influential journals) in the field of Chemistry worldwide. http://excellencemapping.net
ICIQ’s privileged position in this list confirms the Institute’s strong evolution towards scientific excellence since the beginning of its research activities in 2004. Since then, ICIQ has published more than 1700 scientific articles. In 2017, 86% of the publications have been published in the most influential chemical research journals in the world, those ranked in the first quartile (Q1- journals within the top 25 % of journals with highest IF).
ICIQ has made a firm commitment to facilitate access to the research carried out at the Institute. Thus, we follow a policy of publishing in open access, as far as possible, the results of our research, as a way to improve the dissemination of knowledge and innovation. Our publications are available in the open access Recercat (CSUC) repository (https://www.recercat.cat/handle/2072/300912)
