Aberdeen's world leading pharmacology research recognised

Pharmacology research at the University of Aberdeen is ranked second best in the world, according to a new league table published in the Times Higher Education magazine.

The rankings are based on how often a university’s research is cited by scientists from other institutions.

The more citations a university receives, the more important and influential its research is deemed.

The University of Aberdeen is judged second in Europe and second of all the world’s universities according to the Essential Science Indicators database of Thomson Reuters covering January 1999 and October last year.

The table shows Aberdeen’s pharmacology researchers published 202 papers which were cited 6,168 times- just over 30 citations per paper.

Professor Colin McCaig, Head of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Medical Sciences, said: “This is a stunning league table which places pharmacology research at the University of Aberdeen second in the world. We are absolutely delighted with this objective and quantitative assessment of the impact and high esteem in which our research output is held worldwide.”
