The Computer Vision Center, the third government funded research institution in Spain according with the SCImago ranking
The Computer Vision Center (CVC) is classified, according to the 2021 SCImago Institution Ranking (SIR), as the third, among 112, government-funded research institutions in Spain. The first two institutions were the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) and the Institucio Catalana de Recerca i Estudis Avancats (ICREA).
The CVC is also in the TOP-100 (88th out of 1,587) in this ranking Worldwide.
The SCImago Institutions Rankings (SIR) is a classification of academic and research-related institutions ranked by a composite indicator that combines three different sets of indicators based on research performance, innovation outputs and societal impact measured by their web visibility.
It provides a friendly interface that allows the visualization of any customized ranking from the combination of these three sets of indicators.
For the ranking purposes, the calculation is generated each year from the results obtained over a period of five years ending two years before the edition of the ranking. For instance, if the selected year of publication is 2021, the results used are those from the five-year period 2015-2019. The only exception is the case of web indicators which have only been calculated for the last year.
The inclusion criterion is that the institutions had published at least 100 works included in the SCOPUS database during the last year of the selected time period.
The source of information used for the indicators for innovation is PATSTAT database.
The sources of information used for the indicators for web visibility are Google and Ahrefs.
Unpaywall database is used to identify Open Access documents.
Altmetrics from PlumX metrics and Mendeley are used for Societal Factor.
The SIR is from now a LEAGUE TABLE. The aim of SIR is to provide a useful metric tool for institutions, policymakers and research managers for the analysis, evaluation and improvement of their activities, outputs and outcomes.
Best Quartile is obtained by the institution in its country comparing the quartiles based on the overall indicator, research factor, innovation factor and societal factor.
