To objectively measure the scientific output of institutions and countries, Nature Index ranks leading institutions and countries by the number of scientific articles and papers published in leading journals. Only articles published in 82 selected high-quality journals are counted. These journals are selected by an independent committee. The Nature Index uses a fractional count, called Share, which takes each article's share of authorship into account.
