Abstract

This paper analyses the relationship between Universities’ research diversification breadth and depth and their citation-based performance and also ranking. Universities’ diversification is measured based on the disciplinary ratings of universities in Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) in 2015. The results showed a significant positive relationship between both university diversification metrics developed in this study and most of the university citation-based performance metrics obtained from InCites and QS ranking values. In other words, universities which are active in more disciplines and are rated high in terms of their research activity in those disciplines are more likely to have better citation impact performance and ranked higher.
