Dartmouth College ranks highly in a new measure of the impact of academic research on global innovation, according to the Nature Index 2017 Innovation supplement. The index examines how often research articles from top science journals are cited in third-party patents around the world. Dartmouth ranks 20th among the top 200 institutions surveyed in the index, and is the only Ivy League institution in the top 20. Rankings are based on the number of scientific papers that lead to patents owned by entities other than the university itself.
That’s the start of this piece by Dartmouth News Service – which includes this play on Daniel Webster’s famous description of Dartmouth: “It’s a small college, but there are those that cite her.”
