Science-Metrix supports the Council of Canadian Academies in assessing the state and challenges related to ocean science research in Canada

Published on November 4 2013

Science-Metrix was mandated by the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) to provide bibliometric indicators related to the Canadian performance in ocean science research as well as related sub-topics of high interest.

In its analysis, Science-Metrix provided bibliometric data for the top 25 countries and top 200 institutions publishing the most in the field of ocean science, which provided insights to the CCA regarding the positioning of Canada as well as Canadian institutions at the international level. Furthermore, the top 100 publishing Canadian institutions were also identified to provide a complete overview of ocean science research in Canada. The results of the study highlighted the high quality of the research lead in this field in Canada and in these sub-topics, with noticeable strengths identified in the sub-topics of arctic, human impact and human health research associated to ocean science.

The results from this study were incorporated in a CCA report prepared by its Expert Panel on Canadian Ocean Science. This report presents a comprehensive portrait of the state of Ocean Science research in Canada.
