CNRS tops both the Nature Index, which tracks the affiliations of high-quality scientific articles, and Scimago Institutions Rankings, which ranks universities and research institutions. It is also part of the Top 100 Global Innovators (Thomson Reuters indicator).
35,500 publications are being produced on average each year; more than 55% are cosigned with at least one foreign laboratory.
