Bibliometric analyses of research institutions in the Czech Republic examining individual scientific disciplines and their citation rates have placed the Faculty of Pharmacy, Charles University in Hradec Králové, among the highest ranked research institutions in a number of branches. The analyses were conducted using applications of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Analysis (IDEA), which is part of an academic unit called CERGE-EI.

Performance of research organisations in the Czech Republic in terms of their specialist publication rates

The Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové

1st place in the whole of the Czech Republic

  • 1st place in the whole of the Czech Republic based on the indicator of the nationwide participation rate of work units in results in the top 25% of Analytical Chemistry journals, 3rd place in the top 10% and 2nd place in the top 50% of journals in the branch
     
  • 1st place in the whole of the Czech Republic based on the indicator of the nationwide participation rate of work units in results in the top 25% and 50% of Dermatology journals;
     
  • 1st place in the whole of the Czech Republic based on the indicator of the nationwide participation rate of work units in results in the top 50% of Toxicology journals, 2nd place in the top 25% of journals in the branch;
     
  • 1st place in Charles University based on the indicator of the participation rate of work units in results in the top 10%, 25% and 50% of Medicinal Chemistry journals, 3rd place in the Czech Republic in the top 10% of journals in the branch

However, in relation to the above results we should mention that this is only one of the criteria used for evaluating scientific activities in each branch, so this evaluation should not be interpreted as a definitive quality ranking of scientific activities performed by the relevant work units. As the application designers have correctly pointed out, the results should be treated with caution, not least due to the fact that no information on the material and total human resources in the evaluated work units was available. In addition, the analyses do not consider all the results of the work units, but only their publication rates in journals that have been assigned the AIS citation index by the Web of Science database.

The Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové

The most cited institution in the Czech Republic in the Pharmaceutics and Pharmacology branch in the most influential professional journals

  • The most cited institution in the Czech Republic in the Pharmaceutics and Pharmacology branch in the most influential professional journals (nationwide participation of work units in the citation rates in the top 10% and top 25% of research journals)
     
  • 2nd most cited institution in the Czech Republic in the Medicinal Chemistry branch in the most influential professional journals (nationwide participation of work units in the citation rates in the top 10% and top 25% of research journals)
     
  • 2nd most cited institution in the Czech Republic in the Toxicology branch in the most influential professional journals (nationwide participation of work units in the citation rates in the top 10% of research journals)
     
  • 3rd–4th most cited institution in the Czech Republic in the Analytical Chemistry branch in the most influential professional journals (nationwide participation of work units in the citation rates in the top 10% and top 25% of research journals)

This analysis is based on publications such as Article and Review in Journal Citation Reports index database journals which have been assigned a value in the AIS citation index. Once again, we must highlight that the evaluated citations do not include all the citations in publication outputs of the work units that have been subject to evaluation.
