Impact Factor

The evaluation of scientific achievements can be made with various parameters. The most frequently used assessment factor worldwide identifies the quantity of studies and research projects, which are stated within scientific publications. The impact factor is used for allocating funds to research projects, or comprise universities. It is also used for the target-agreement of the Austrian universities with the Ministry of Science, Research and Economy, or for the application to chair title of universities as well as award ceremonies. The graphic shows the research output of the Department of Internal Medicine III of the Salzburg Federal Hospital/Paracelsus Medical University from one calendar year, compared to the 60 institutions and clinics of the Salzburg Federal Hospital/Paracelsus Medical University.
The circles are corresponding to the cumulated points of each clinic from 0 to 291.3; the Department of Internal Medicine III is shown at the top of the red diagram.

 

The Department of Internal Medicine III is the top research institution of the Salzburg Federal Hospital/Paracelsus Medical University.
