IPGP research ranked in the top 10 worldwide and 1st in France for Earth sciences

On 27 October 2023, the Shanghai Ranking published its academic ranking of the world's top universities, covering 54 disciplines. Université Paris Cité, thanks to the IPGP, its component institution and the university's only Earth sciences entity, is now ranked 10th in the world and 1st in France among research universities in the field of Earth sciences.

The indicators used for this Shanghai ranking show the IPGP’s very strong publication dynamic in the best international journals, with a consistently high proportion of publications from international collaborations and a citation rate for the institute’s work that has been rising steadily for several years. These indicators position the IPGP as a benchmark institute in Earth sciences, both nationally and internationally, and can only increase the IPGP’s attractiveness to students and researchers.

However, this ranking does not take into account the IPGP’s two other statutory activities, teaching and observation, and the major role it plays in relation to telluric natural hazards. It should also be remembered that this ranking is essentially based on bibliometrics and journal impact factors, and that the IPGP is a signatory to the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), a global initiative aimed at improving methods for assessing the results of university research.
