Japan’s second “most-productive” university in terms of “Number of papers per academic-staff”

UK-based QS announced the QS Asian University ranking 2018 (Oct. 2017), and TUAT ranked as the top 1% of universities in Asia. In particular, it became the second place in Japan as “the number of papers per academic-staff” which is an indicator of “research power”.

Not only the amount of research paper but also the quality (impact) has earned high praise. At the QS World University Ranking 2019 (June 2018), the number of citations per staff (how much was cited in other papers: an indicator of the impact of a paper) ranked 5th in Japan.
