Taiwan Ranks High in University Research

May 17, 2008

When most Americans think of leaders in university research, amongst the first to come to mind are Harvard, the University of Chicago, New York University and The Johns Hopkins University, to name a few. But rarely do universities like National Taiwan University, National Cheng Kung University or National Yang Ming University seep into frontal lobes–although in many cases, they should.

Taiwan Universities ranked among the top one percent of research institutions in the world in 2003 to 2007 according to data from the Essential Science Indicators (ESI) of Thomson Reuters. Leading research categories included chemistry, engineering, toxicology and pharmacology.

“The ranking result derived from ESI reflects the citation impact of Taiwan universities which has been growing significantly these past five years,” said Mr. Mark Garlinghouse, vice president, Asia Pacific for the Scientific Business of Thomson Reuters.
