CWTS Leiden Ranking 2013

My comments:
If minimum publication is set at 500, only UM made it to the charts.
If minimum publication is set at 100, both UM and USM made it.
UM did better than USM for Biomedical and Health Sciences, with collaboration, with minimum # of publications set at 500.

How many publications per lecturer?
500 publications, divided by 300 lecturers, means about 1-2 publications per lecturer. This is average.

Who is top in Asia?
UM scored 63rd place
USM scored 79th place

I think USM did ok being in the top 93 universities in Asia. Not too bad.

What's next?
I haven't seen the ranking for Asian medical schools.
