The academic publications of Wageningen UR have a fairly great impact, judging from another world ranking list: the Leiden ranking 2011-2012. Wageningen is at position 69.
Wageningen researchers publish a great deal jointly with their international colleagues, concludes CWTS. For such collaborative publications, the Leiden centre does not do a 'full counting' - in which all participating universities get a full count for a publication - but a 'fractional counting', which is determined by their share in the publication. This more defined method results in better scores for technical universities and lower positions for universities with a medical centre. However, this adjustment does not seem to make much difference for Wageningen UR; its position on the Leiden list corresponds quite neatly to its 75 th position on the list of the Times Higher Education.
The Leiden Ranking is based on data from the Web of Science database.
