XJTLU Research Profile
Publication Output and Impact (2006-2018)

Using the data from 2006 to 2018, XJTLU Research Profile: Publication Output and Impact examines the research literacy output of XJTLU in terms of published papers, and looks into the development of XJTLU’s research capabilities and impact.


Statistics on publication output are retrieved from the Web of Science Core Collection.


Overall, researchers from XJTLU have published 2,183 papers in 1,421 journals or conference proceedings indexed by WoS since the establishment of the University. The average Category Normalized Citation Impact (CNCI) of XJTLU’s published papers is 1.24, which is slightly over the world average. The papers have been cited for a total of 12,394 times.


The figure shows the map of the research areas of XJTLU’s indexed papers published from 2006 to 2018. The size of the rings indicates the amount of papers published on a specific research area by year. The links and the fuchsia outer rings represent Centrality Strength.

Mathematical & Computational Biology (Centrality Strength = 0.78) is the most multidisciplinary research area in XJTLU, followed by Computer Science Interdisciplinary Applications (Centrality Strength = 0.7) and Food Science and Technology (Centrality Strength = 0.59). It indicates that research in these areas is very interdisciplinary, and researchers may have collaborations across different subjects and research themes.


As a Sino-foreign university, XJTLU not only has extensive international cooperation with researchers in other countries, but also collaborate closely with universities in China. Statistics have shown that the University has cooperated with over 70 countries and over 900 institutions or organisations since 2006.


The figure shows the co-citation (which means that two journals are cited in one paper) network of most-cited journals in XJTLU researchers’ papers. The nodes represent different journals, and the edges denote the co-cited relations among journals. The strength of co-cited relations is expressed by edge thickness.
