Impressive showings in publication and research intensity have helped Trent University secure a spot among the top four undergraduate research universities in the nation, and number two in Ontario, in the annual rankings of Canada’s top research institutions by Research Infosource.
In the Research Infosource 2019 ranking of Canada’s top 50 research universities, Trent University earned the #2 spot for publication intensity, and the #3 spot in publications impact in the undergraduate category, a measure of the citations of published work of Trent researchers by other authors in peer review journals.
“These rankings reflect the success of Trent University’s faculty and students in research,” says Trent University president and vice-chancellor Dr. Leo Groarke. “Each year, our faculty, Canada research chairs, and graduate students, receive many grants that support them as they study some of the most interesting and pressing research questions of today.”
In the 2019 rankings for undergraduate institutions, Trent University was also named #3 for overall number of publications and #4 for research intensity. Trent is also the only undergraduate university to score in the top 10 for all three of the tri-council-related categories of research: the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
