Scientific publications in 2016-2017

A key indicator about the performance of a María de Maeztu Unit is the number and quality of the scientific publications produced. In this period, the researchers in the unit published 262 journal articles, 86% of them in Q1, and 62% in the first decile (D1). In comparison with the scientific production over the past years, it implies a consolidation of the number of publication around the set...
