The high scientific quality combined with the application of the research results is the basis on which our research team is an international reference.

The number of scientific publications remains at around 120 indexed publications per year (2019 data), of which 61% are in the 1 quartile, with a h-index of 80 (at least 80 scientific papers with 80 or more citations). In terms of quality, the number of citations continues to increase steadily, reaching 27.5 citations per publication. Of particular note is publication in high impact journals such as Nature Communications.

These are the scientific articles published by AZTI’s research staff from April to September 2020.
