In 20 Disciplines Sidebars

Editor's Note: The newsletter Science Watch-published by the Philadelphia-based Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)-last turned its attention toward Canada more than three years ago. The publication examined Quebec universities' contribution to the nation's overall performance in science (3:1; June/July 1992). In its November/December 1995 issue (6:10), Science Watch expanded its scope to cover universities throughout Canada. Using records of total citations and citation impact, Science Watch ranked the top three Canadian universities in 20 fields.
