In 2016, the web application Mapping Scientific Excellence ranks ICIQ in third position on “Best Paper Rate” (proportion of highly cited papers published by an institution) and second on “Best Journal Rate” (ratio of papers published in the most influential journals) in the field of Chemistry worldwide. http://excellencemapping.net
ICIQ’s privileged position in this list confirms the Institute’s strong evolution towards scientific excellence since the beginning of its research activities in 2004. Since then, ICIQ has published more than 1500 scientific articles. About 90% of them have been published in the most influential chemical research journals in the world, those ranked in the first quartile (Q1- journals within the top 25 % of journals with highest IF).
