HEA Forfás Nov 2009
Forfás and the Higher Education Authority (HEA) have published two reports which profile research activity in Ireland and which measure Irish research outputs against various international markers.The bibliometric report measures performance outputs from the Irish universities and research institutions in terms of published journal papers in various disciplines. RCSI's substantial and growing research impact is noted in a number of contexts. A second report maps the extent of Irish research collaboration with institutions worldwide.
The bibliometric and collaboration reports are available for download from the HEA site at
