Recently Oregon State University was ranked fourth in the nation for the number of papers published in professional journals thatÂ were focused on ecologyÂ or the environment. An analysisÂ done by Thomas Reuters found only three other Universities that exceeded Oregon State University. Here is some additional information from theÂ Gazette TimesÂ on this achievement that all Beaver Believers should be proud of!
The analysis was done by Thomson Reuters, and it showed that 1,069 papers were published between 2005-09 by OSU researchers, almost 1 percent of the national total. Only scientists from the University of California at Davis, University of California at Berkeley, and University of Florida exceeded this total.
OSU has a wide range of experts working in these fields from several of its colleges, especially the College of Science, College of Forestry, College of Agricultural Sciences, College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences, and College of Engineering.
