UCSF’s most internally collaborative departments, 2017

Some UCSF departments consistently reach out out to collaborate with other members of the UCSF community. Here are the top UCSF departments whose researchers have the highest proportion of publications co-authored with people at other UCSF departments.

This ranking is based on data is drawn from UCSF Profiles, and only includes departments whose researchers had 100+ publications in 2017. We counted departmental affiliations based on someone’s primary department in UCSF Profiles in April 2018. So if someone subsequently left UCSF or changed primary departments, we wouldn’t count them as part of the primary department they were affiliated with at the time of publication. Or if they published something while at another institution in 2017, but subsequently moved to UCSF by April 2018, that paper would be chalked up their current UCSF department.
