UKIRT's Productivity Rising

UKIRT's Productivity Continues To Rise

The productivity of an observatory is traditionally measured by the number of refereed articles containing observatory data. For the past three years running, UKIRT has set new productivity records as results from the UKIDSS survey have appeared in print (see here).

This trend is continuing. In the first four months of 2012, 76 papers based on UKIRT data appeared in the literature. If this rate is maintained, the publication rate for 2012 will smash the previous record by a very wide margin (see figure below).



The specific criteria for inclusion in the UKIRT publication list can be found here.
